I had a much different blog post scheduled for today, a polemic on social media, Tee Vee advertising, and men’s jeans. I called it “Opera Jeans” and although I hadn’t crafted how it would hang together on the page, it was pretty darn funny in my head.
Something came up, though, and I wasn’t able to orchestrate the production. One of those events where everyone says they have “no words” but then proceed to have many words.
I love Vaughn Monroe. I love his soothing baritone voice, full of confidence and style. He was a man of another time. I had never heard this particular song until recently and I loved it. The lyrics are jingoistic and American, but countering clock watching appeals to me today.
Life is short. Stop watching the clock.
