Once I was staying over at a professor’s house and he, his wife, and I had been watching The Wire. They left the room briefly when this scene came up and their oldest daughter who was still pretty young came in the room and watched it. I didn’t know what to do! I didn’t want to reprimand someone else’s child and I also don’t really think anything of little kids hearing the word fuck. I just kind of sat there until he came back and told her she knew she wasn’t supposed to be watching that. I HAVE LIVED WITH THE SHAME AND DISCOMFORT OF THIS MOMENT SINCE THIS HAPPENED. It is my greatest burden.
I sang this to our family dog Django once and he loved it. He lost his shit, he stared at me the whole time and wagged the weird little half-nub he has in place of a tail a lot. He loved it so much! I just kept singing the words “electric love” at him over and over. It’s possibly the happiest he’s been since earlier that same day when he stole some garbage and hid it in his crate to eat later.
