Last night a song entered my head. That's not unusual, except this was a song that hadn't been in my head for at least 25 years. In fact, at first I didn't know where it came from or whether it was an old memory or something I invented.
I sang it to Taryn, but she didn't know it. The lyrics are "Dr. Snuggles, friend to the animal world." When I closed my eyes, I could see the opening of a television I used to watch when I was very young. I could even see the little tv in the basement of a house I lived in until 1983.
Naturally, I dropped by YouTube to see if anyone was sharing a clip of this Dr. Snuggles opening. As luck would have it, they had it, and I felt so validated. The show existed, I had the words right and I even nailed the tune.
