I was cleaning the toilet (ahem: lavatory) when the song Counting Stars, by One Republic popped into my head. Odd, but, what the hey. Since no one was around, I started singing out loud. You know, like people do when cleaning the, um, lavatory. Now, I’m not such a fan that I remember every single word, but I know enough to make a go of it.
So, there I am, scrubbing and singing, swishing and singing, flushing and singing.
Young, but I’m not that old.
Old, but I’m not that bold.
I now understood why that song came to me.
The lavatory (toilet, commode, whatever you prefer to call it) was manufactured by Kohler, the brand name clearly stamped into the ceramic.
In case you’ve somehow missed the tag line from this particular company, allow me to share…
I will never be able to hear Counting Stars again without thinking of a toilet. Dammit, marketing firms of the world. You’ve ruined another song for me.
