#SoCS – Smoothie


I have an earworm. The song “Smooth” by Santana and Rob Thomas came on the radio yesterday, and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. My neighbours might have it in their heads too, since I had it turned up when I pulled into the driveway.  It’s so random how some songs get stuck in my head and others are just meh. Whatever.

So summer’s coming, and that means it’s going to be time once again to be tempted by smoothies. The ones at Tim Horton’s with yogurt in them are sinfully delicious. I’d probably consume far more of them if they didn’t give me brain freeze. You know that feeling, right? When the cold goes through your soft palate and takes a grip on your grey matter like it’s being squeezed by a terrifying version of a snowman? Like the one in that movie with Michael Keaton … Jack Frost. Yeah, that’s the one. Scary. Zombie snowmen who hide in smoothies and eat brains. Wow, stream of consciousness … If I start adding food colouring and yummy fruity flavours to my snowmen next year, get me the hell out of there, would you?

Yeah, I’ll stick to Tim’s coffee from now on. Thanks.

I’ve totally forgotten the prompt at this point. Ah well. Or should I say baa humbug?

  2. You got that whole song in your head, whoa. I was thinking of ‘Smooth Operator.’ It hasn’t got hot enough here just yet. I can’t believe summer is coming soon.


  3. I could change my life to better suit your mood because this post was so smooth.

  8. Santana is NEVER an earworm — ALWAYS welcome. Thanks for embedding it; OF COURSE I had to listen to it. If that song could play in my head all the time, I’d never be sad.

  9. I’m glad I never saw that movie, but I do like the song. And nothing is off topic in the stream of consciousness. 🙂
