Somebody couldn’t remember the old Carly Simon song Anticipation. Sure you remember it, I said. How did it go? I began humming what I thought was the melody but was actually the bass line, accompanied by Jim Keltner’s (or was it Andy Newmark’s?) accents on the tom toms, boomp ba de bum boomp boomp. Air drummed, of course. The person looked at me bewildered. I stopped, felt like an idiot, and said in a monotone: Anticipation, anticipay-ay-shun. Oh yeah, he said, and began singing along.
