My day has begun with a ginormous miscommunication between another department, a teaching assistant, myself, and a tenured faculty member. Apparently, a few of the parties involved were in the loop but not the ones that actually really matter and make a difference in terms of schedules and pay, like myself. This is utterly irritating to me and I certainly don’t appreciate it. But that’s behind me now.
But in the same vein, I was listening to the radio this morning – well, XM radio – and Aerosmith’s “Janie got a gun” came on. When I was younger, I never really listened to the lyrics. I sort of always though it was just about some chick who bought a gun. This morning, I think I realized that it’s about her dad who either molested and/or beat her. Damn, guess he did deserve what he got. And she’ll probably get off all charges because hell, there has to be some evidence, right? Maybe I’m reading into it too much.
But tell me, are there any songs you used to mindlessly sing then suddenly understood?
