I remember the tune from the oldies station our parents would listen to while playing cards. It always amused me at the same time I gave the songwriters and singers a benefit of the doubt, similar to what I’d given many of my relatives who were sharp enough to make jokes, while harboring more expansive ideas about the more meaningful aspects of relationships and life. There are always more layers.

I had the tune in my head, but it’s a tangent.

When I saw the joint bungee jump, I started to watch to see if the intensity of a shared experience would come into play.
