Today’s Repressed Memory: Doctor’s Office Music

3 03 2009

hey, it’s cheaper than a shrink.

Due to circumstances far beyond my (and Mom’s and Dad’s) control, as a kid I spent too much time in doctors offices.
Seemed like no matter which doctor we went to see, they all played the same station.
The Soft Rock Station.  (perhaps today, it would be “all of your favorites from the 70s, 80s and today!”)
Not wanting to go in the first place and then sitting though “Against all Odds” (Phil Collins), “Daniel” (Elton John), “Sara” (Starship), “Kokomo” (Beach Boys), “Baker Street” (Gerry Rafferty), “The Things We Do for Love” (10cc), etc. which when you’re under ten is as bad as having to do spelling homework.
Perhaps it’s all those afternoons spent with people poking and prodding, stabbing and slicing that makes the “Adult Contemporary” station so hard to listen to.  Even now.
So if we’re in the car and I say I hate Billy Joel, I mean it.

(nowdays I’m an “OH MY GOD! IT’S A TUMOR!!!” or “Meh, the bleeding will stop. Eventually.” kind of girl)

I think it confirms what we all already knew: You’re a basketcase.

Not a fan of that era either, but for entirely different reasons.

I was thinking of starting a new blog called “Welcome to the Darkside” where I could talk about stuff that annoys me without ruining my reputation as the epitome of sweetness and light!!! I love your posts, I can so relate and you are too funny.

So it’s true. If it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger?
