Day 5: a song that reminds you of someone
There are so many songs that remind me of friends, enemies, frenemies… but I chose today’s song because the memory it triggers makes me laugh out loud. This is a song that my dad used to holler occasionally in the car—it always surprised me because he gave no warning, no indication that he was feeling especially good or attractive. He just belted it. It was horrible, and it was awesome. It was horrisome.
“I Feel Pretty,” from West Side Story
Reminds me of Dad every time I hear it. He could be so goofy sometimes.
