Dear internet: Here's today's reason why I <3 u.
Years ago, I heard a song in a cafe. Every year, when the world slowly -- then suddenly -- starts turning green again, the title phrase comes back into my head, and gets stuck there for a few days.
"Spring always takes you by surprise." Such a lovely line; such a pretty melody around it.
Every year, I google the title phrase; every year I can't find what I'm looking for.
But today, when I saw the iris buds that weren't there last time I looked, and the earworm returned, right on time, I googled the phrase and boom -- the MP3 on Amazon came up as the first result.
So I bought the song, after years of thinking I'd never hear it except in my head again.
Thank you, internet.
