@therealjrn You watching Village of the Giants tonight? I’m not only because our MeTV UHF station hasn’t really come in for a couple of months. Village of the Giants is aggressively stupid, but I keep on thinking if I watch it one day I’ll remember the difference between Tommy Kirk and Tommy Sands (well, I know the difference: one was fired from Disney for being gay and in a relationship with a 15-year-old, the other was married to Nancy Sinatra and recorded one of the worse songs I have heard, Soda Pop Pop, it’s just that I have trouble saying offhand which one is which).

When I was a kid, my sister and I played tag a lot, running around the backyard, jumping over the cat, under the clotheslines, etc etc.
One day in particular I remember, Mom said it was ok for us to play, but she needed help first since she’d done laundry for the whole house and we had to put all the bedclothes up on the lines. Soon they were drying nicely in the sun, so I whacked my sister on the arm and said, “TAG YOU’RE IT!” and ran off.
Mom called out, “Stay away from those clotheslines, kids! Don’t It where you Sheet!”
