Molasses

MolassesRachel smiled as she listened to Dawn singing along with the radio. She had a good voice, unlike Rachel, who couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. On the plus side, Rachel had managed to knock out a Vrykolp demon with her singing voice, a feat that would have been even more impressive if he hadn't been a prospective client.

Shaking herself out of her reverie, Rachel realised that Dawn had stopped singing and was looking slightly stunned. "What?"

"I just realised that song is about a serial killer."

"Stellar detective skills."

Dawn grinned at Rachel. "Better later than never."

But it's so bouncy! And serial killers are so much fun... :-)

And, like a good serial killer, this one snuck up on Dawn to deliver the goods.

I couldn't resist.

I wanted to add something about the coffee demons worshipping cacophony (as well as the almighty bean) and venerating her as a demi-god, but hit the word limit. May have to find a home for that another time. I did get to use your couldn't carry a tune in a bucket, so was quite happy to get that in there.

Ohh, lord. You would select one about a killer. Typical. *laughs*

Good one! :D

It's all terribly predictable, isn't it?

Nice to know I've amused you.

Predictable, yes. In a good way, of course. :-)

Hee! Songs can be like that. You listen to them because you like the beat. Then you listen closely to the words, or read the lyrics and you discover what it's actually about. Love the bantering between the two also.

LOL! I hate that song. I get it in my head and can't get rid of it. Love the drabble though.

The horror of the earworm! Sorry to infect you.

I've found that the badgers are good for getting rid of earworms. This could be a problem if you find the badgers worse than the orginal earworm.
