Weirdest song of the day


On my way to work, I walk by a hospice for people living with AIDS (one of two in the neighborhood). And as I passed this morning, I heard a woman singing in the courtyard, invisible behind a thick hedge. Her song was short — just one sentence on infinite repeat:

Y’all got nothing but sorrow,
But we have AIDS.

At the time, I wasn’t sure how to take that. And frankly, I’m still not sure. But it made me stop, and in a week like this, that’s kind of an amazing feat.
