This song convinced me to buy my first stereo system. I remember standing in the [Big W] at Karrinyup shops, and this song came on a TEAC stereo system sitting on the shelf. It sounded better than anything I’d heard before (all we had at home were mono-speaker radios and TVs) and I was convinced to buy it right then on the spot. Still think about that moment from 1991 every damn time this song comes on the radio.
I had surgery under general anaesthetic today, from a surgeon I’ve only briefly met in his consulting rooms. In the last few moments before I went under, my conversation with the surgeon was like this:
Surgeon: So you’re a police officer, right?
Me: No, I work for a bank.
Surgeon: Oh right, but I know your in-laws, right?
My last thought before going under was, “Wait, am I in the right place? What is this guy going to do to me?”
Thankfully when I woke up it was all okay, and I have a lovely new pair of boobs.
