I remembered this instant message conversation the other day, and THEN I remembered that Elizabeth had saved it on her online journal (back in the day we all had journals), and THEN I thought it would make a good blog post. But then to find it I had to go traipsing backwards through said journal because I had no idea when it had happened. Turns out it was December of 2008. To Elizabeth: apologies for stalking you backwards through time. Everyone else: prepare to be impressed with my grasp of onomatopoeia!
Elizabeth: I NEEEEEEEEED YOU!
Me: Good heavens, dear child, whatever is the matter?
Elizabeth: Do you remember when we played this piece back in high school that I think was a from an opera?
Elizabeth: It might have been called intermezzo or something.
Me: Cavalleria Rusticana?
Elizabeth: Maybe! Let me find it on iTunes!
Elizabeth: I heard it and I CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS CALLED.
Me: Does it go, DUUUUUUH Da DUUUUUUUH Da DUH DA DA DA DUH DAAAAAAH DUH?
Elizabeth: Hahahahahahaha, yeah!
I don’t remember typing like a pretentious snot… but I can believe that I did.
Okay, let’s see what YOU can do. What am I singing? I’ll give you some hints: 20th century Eastern European, part of a movie soundtrack. Ready?
BUH ba da duh duh da ba duh da duh duh da da da DAH duh-DAH duuuuuuh
Whaddya think? Tweet at me if you need another hint!
