Your Thursday Moment of This Way Madness Lies

Attentive -- and perhaps unusually forgiving -- readers may recall that of late, for reasons we needn't get into, I've been using old episodes of the Jack Benny radio show as a sleeping aid.

And that I have unaccountably developed a huge fondness for the Irish tenor song stylings of Dennis Day as a result.

Okay, I know I said I wouldn't inflict another Day song on you again, but I heard this one -- from a 1942 show -- last night and found myself thinking it was really sweet and really funny.

I hope you agree.

And okay, this time I PROMISE YOU I WON'T DO IT AGAIN.

I'm not kidding, honest.

I should add, BTW, that the song was co-written by the great Jule Styne, who had more substantial success writing "People" and the entire score of Funny Girl. Just saying.

KidC and NYMary: you may want to check on Steve to make sure he's OK. Has he had any blows to the head recently?
If not maybe you should give him one. I know he promised not to do it again, but anyone who could do this twice can not be trusted.
Steve: Love the blog. Really.
