Ericast 319 - A Couple Potatoes

2020 has been a really rough year in lots of ways for lots of people. So, let's close it out with something completely different, because I was listening to a song and thought, "She's singing about what?!?" Want to know what it actually was? Here's your show.

In the last few hours of 2020... We just need a break with something light.  Call 701-645-3742 if you've got your own contribution.

I've got a Pandora station based on The Weeknd (Blinding Lights in particular) and the song "Ocean Drive" by Pia Mia comes up occasionally. It was released in 2017 but seems to be in circulation now.  It's got a great beat, happy and bouncy.  In keeping this a work-safe, child-safe podcast, let's use a euphemism and say she's talking about having a "picnic" on the beach.  That idea has never appealed to me because it seems that sand would get everywhere.  I like fluffy blankets. Sand isn't fluffy.

Anyway, coming out of the chorus, she explains that they've got a couple of haters.  I get that -- as I said, this sounds awkward and uncomfortable.  And then she explains that she's got... well, take a listen.

She's got a couple potatoes.  That's it.  It has to be.

Once you Google the lyrics you discover that they apparently have "a couple spectators."

But I say it's "potatoes."  And among everything else, that's what we can remember 2020 for.
