The consumate professional

Scene: Sitting in the newsroom, listening to music on my headphones while typing on deadline a front-page news feature about the mobile phone industry.

Disruption: The Fraggle Rock theme song inexplicably begins playing.

Response: At first befuddlement. How did this song get on my computer? And then, with a glance up at the clock revealing 20 minutes to deadline, a shrug of the shoulders and smile as the story gets finished to the tune of Fraggle Rock.

Dance your cares away/Worries for another day/Let the music play/Down on Fraggle Rock…

    That show terrified me when I was little. I couldn’t watch it. Those big ugly things near the trash heap that tried to eat the “Fwaggles” scared me to no end.

    So of course my mom, who doesn’t forget such things, bought the DVD collection for me and Amy last Christmas.

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a mother with a sense of humour. Well done, Mrs. Boughner.

    They’re making a FRAGGLE ROCK MOVIE! Dibs on joint watching when you decide to make it back to North America.
