Wonderful Tunes Provided By Friends. Wild Tangents Provided By Me.

Paul McCartney was inspired to write “She Came In Through The Bathroom Window” in 1969 after a few of his fans broke into his home through a bathroom window. As far as I could tell no one (except Paul) suffered any negative consequences from the act. I guess the 60’s were truly the salad days for crazy stalker chicks.

The one downside to it is that, at my house, I have a downstairs bathroom and an upstairs bedroom. I’m just going to let the older bladders in the room silently contemplate the horrors of such an arrangement. Suffice it to say there have been times, in the wee hours of the morning (they don’t call ’em “wee” hours for nothing), I have seriously considered voluntary incontinence… again!
