Just before we left the restaurant, I went to the bathroom. As I was washing my hands, I heard this refrain from the tinny speakers overhead:
Life goes on, without me.
It was Louis Prima, channeling Mom*.
Honestly. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.
*Note the "I'm...so sad and lonely!" refrain that repeats constantly, even though the song is relentlessly upbeat and cheerful. I ask you, what is a person supposed to do with this information? Vintage Mom. That's how I knew for sure. Subtle was never her style.
