Quiet? I don’t know the word

I’ve spent the last 5 days alone with the kids and their various friends who come over to visit. My life has a running background soundtrack of Pokémon, Minecraft and Skylanders. It’s non-stop.

How can they talk this long? It can’t be possible.

They might not be human.

Also, you know when you get a snippet of some annoying song in your head? Well, I’ve had that experience at various points all week when that happens with a live chorus. They can repeat one song line over and over and never stop until someone (me) goes crazy.

Examples:

“Ducktales, woo-hoo!  … Ducktales, woo-hoo! … Ducktales, woo-hoo!”

(No other lines, just that line…. OVER AND OVER)

“Christmas, Christmas time is here, time for toys and time for cheer.
Christmas, Christmas time is here, time for toys and time for cheer.
Christmas, Christmas time is here, time for toys and time for cheer.Christmas, Christmas time is here, time for toys and time for cheer.”

(As if the entire song wouldn’t have driven you crazy anyway, now it’s just the one line.)

I’m just writing this down so it’s understood that when I start writing complete nonsense soon, people will understand how I lost my mind.

(I’d like to add that I was interrupted while writing this for my youngest child to say, “There’s this video with a dinosaur and he goes EEE! EEE! EEE! and then the other dinosaur goes “GEE GEE GEE!” …. which is now causing 3 children in the next room to start screaming/singing EEE EEE EEE! GEE! GEE! GEE!)
