Mr. S And Schoolhouse Rock

All seniors in my high school were required to take a semester of Government. (I assume this was intended to make us into knowledgeable members of the voting population, but I digress.)

Anyhow, one of the things we had to know was the Preamble to the Constitution.  So one morning Mr. S. showed us the Preamble...Schoolhouse Rock style.  Several times.

Now, I'm the kind of person that's really susceptible to getting songs stuck in her head.  And that Preamble song was incredibly catchy!

I had Government 1st hour.  At the end of the day the song was still stuck in my head.

The next morning, Mr. S. played the video again.

My head hit the desk with an audible thunk.  When Mr. S. asked what was wrong, I looked up and wailed "I just got that dang song out of my head!!!"

The whole class laughed.  I laughed too; it was kind of funny.

But the whole rest of the year, whenever Mr. S. saw me in the hall, he'd sing those first few notes...and I'd be singing it the rest of the day!

On the plus side, I DID get a perfect score on the Preamble test!
