Before I Became a Heathen, I Went to Sunday School

I've got the joy on the counter

As I was cleaning my glasses this morning (the better to see you with, my dear), the words of an old Sunday school song came unbidden. I don’t remember them all, but what I do remember are: I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart. Where? Down in my heart Down in my heart. I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart. Something something. I immediately changed it to: I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy on the counter. Where? On the counter. On the counter. I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy on the counter right next to the dishwasher. Yeah, I get silly when I sleep in. Image is my own

i'm not familiar with the song, but yes, it's funny. i think we all do silly things like that and usually out of the blue and we end up laughing at ourselves.

Yes, it came out of the blue. I had a little chuckle before the day started.
