One of the worst possible earworms (songs that get stuck in your head) to have is the Sinatra song “That’s Life”. Not so much because it was one of the Chairman of the Musical Board’s most bombastic performances, or that it contains such lyrics as “I thought of quitting (baby), but my heart ain’t gonna buy it.” It’s because of the part of the song that goes…

I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet,
A pawn and a king.

…where, I for one, get caught in a loop of words that start with a ‘P’.

I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a prophet, a pundit, a puppy, a punster, a pussy, a puzzle, a painter, a pacman, a palmist, a planter, a plumber, a pack mule, a punk, a placekicker, a pimp, a peacekeeper, a pornstar, a prankster, a point guard, a prawn, a policeman, a private eye, a prune, a programmer, a pickpocket, a punisher, a puritan, a placebo, a piledriver, a powderpuff, a power plant, a pipefitter, a paperboy, a paramedic, a paralegal, a parapsychologist, a paradigm, a paradox, a pair of pants, a populist, a projectionist, a podiatrist, a pathologist, a paperhanger, a postmaster, a proofreader*, a park ranger, a Prime Minister, a prime number, a perfectionist, a pomegranate, a parking lot attendant, a Price Is Right showcase model… STOP ME BEFORE I ‘P’ AGAIN!

*and not a very good one, as my own blog demonstrates
