There are those songs that play at that precise moment and you say “I was just thinking that!!!”
The evening of Christmas eve 2005, I had traded phones with my daughter. She downloads ringtones and all of that fun stuff. At the time I was getting up at 4:20 a.m. to take the train to work. So I had set my alarm up at that time.
That morning, I ended up in the hospital on a complication of the abdominal surgery I had had months earlier. As anyone who has been in the hospital knows, the nurses do a good job at interrupting your sleep every so many hours (or minutes). At 4:20 a.m. a nurse was in my room again taking my vitals when the alarm went off as loud as the phone was capable of:
“ ’cause you had a bad day, you’re taking one down, you sing a sad song just to turn it around…You had a bad day”
With no hesitation, the nurse looked at me and said:
“and you really had a bad day”.
No songever came that close to the moment.
