because...

I was stuck in the mid-afternoon Athenian traffic. Not my favorite place to be. My patience dropping by the minute, as I shifted from first to second gear then back again. And then...

This song came on my car stereo... And I just... lost it... I started singing, timidly at first, but quickly rising to an all-out belt... From the corner of my eye I caught some drivers from nearby cars looking and smiling...as they saw someone in a tweed jacket and a knit tie giving a heartfelt performance, hair flopping about and all!...

Such a catchy little tune... so infectuous... It 's an oldie... by the Dave Clarke Five. And it 's called...

BECAUSE

It 's right that I should care about you
and try to make you happy when you 're blue
it 's right, it 's right to feel the way I do
because, because I love you

It 's wrong to say I don't think I do
'cause when you say these things
you know it makes me blue

Give me one kiss and I 'll be happy
just, just to be here with you
give me, give me a chance to be near you
because, because I love you...

For the first time in my life, I think I actually sang in tune...

~Papy,...lol...thanks.

I do try to take the subway whenever I can. However it 'd be too cruel to subject the poor passengers to my singing...

~Tiller,

I will more than happily 'sing' it. I 'm afraid you wouldn't want me to literally hear me sing.

kisses, T.
