The song was stuck in my head, and I was going to be hearing it all day. But that wasn’t what was most annoying.
It was stuck there because I was doing a good deed and helping a friend.
I may have helped distract their kids for the afternoon.
But spending more than half that time stuck on a broken ride while the theme music track plays at what feels like increasingly annoying volume and while the kids finally achieve their dream of memorizing the lyrics and choreography is just the icing on the cake.
My only consolation is that at the end of the day, I get to return the little parrots to their home, where they will inflict their new learning on their parents.
