Sometimes somebody writes something so clever, I hit myself (gently) on the head and say, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
Well, today is one of those days. And the person who beat me (by a mile) to the punch is Roz Warren, one very funny librarian and writer. Roz just wrote a piece that I’ve got to share with you.
The title’s “I Don’t Want to Hold Your Hand – What if Beatles Songs Were About the Pandemic?”
Here are a couple of my favorites from Roz’s updated Beatles’ playlist:
Help! I Need Some Toilet Paper! All You Need is Hand Sanitizer Can’t Buy Me Lysol Wipes Eight Zoom Meetings a Week The Long and Winding Zoom Meeting
And my personal favorite,
While My Stock Market Portfolio Gently Plummets
You can find Roz’s full story/playlist here. Roz really is a librarian by the way. She’s written a book about her experiences called Our Bodies, Our Shelves: A Collection of Library Humor. Pardon the obvious pun but check it out!
And with that, I’m going to go and play some of my favorite Beatles tunes. I guess “We all live in a Yellow Submarine” is appropriate for Day 36, the start of the 6th week of sheltering in place! I just wish my friends could come on board! Oh, well.
