There is a Thing Lodged in My Skull

Tonight starts the last weekend of performances for the dinky little cabaret I'm doing. I will dress up in my finest and in a couple hours I'll be strutting across the stage belting out (to the extent that I belt, which is minimal; my technique might more accurately be described as Sans-A-Belt) lyrics like this:

I've got a tiny little pot
A little pot with tiny bells
A magic nose who sniffs and tells
And all of this we made ourselves
To entertain the princess

Ah! Ooh! It sings and dances too!
A veritable hit parade
To which your guests can promenade
While they sip their lemonade
And eat their blintzes

Seriously. Go ahead and get that cocktail you're suddenly craving. I'll wait. Yes, I'll be right here, humming the ineradicable goddamn song about dancing cookware that will never, ever leave my head.

In fact, bring me a cocktail too. Make mine a double.

Several years ago, I played Flint in a stock production of Something's Afoot, a musical parody of Ten Little Indians. My big song was the double entendre-laced "Dinghy" (wherein I implore the ingenue to escape the murderous mayhem about by sailing away from the island with me and my "teeny little dinghy".

That was nearly a decade ago and I still wake up with that song in my head sometimes.

Wake up screaming, I mean.

"I wander through the wide, wide world,
Full of Fire I,
Henrietta is my love,
and I'm the apple of her eye.

As vast as the plains, as wide as the sea,
Is my love for you.
Princess I won't give you up,
My love for you is true."
