Brad was online at the Outback Steakhouse website yesterday. We were both sitting here in the quiet living room, and suddenly there were about four or five notes of panpipe music that came out of the blue. I knew exactly what it was- the theme music/restaurant jingle of Outback, the kind of thing that automatically plays when you go to their website- but Brad is apparently ignorant of such trivia...because he freaked OUT.
It was so funny to watch him- his eyes got all bugged out and huge. He didn't know WHERE that music had come from. He was sitting in the chair with the laptop but the speakers were behind the chair... so the music came from behind him and he was completely disoriented.
He said later that he thought maybe someone was in our garage and that their cell phone had gone off. I think it's so funny how our brains can construct a scenario in about two seconds to respond to some stimuli that we can't immediately identify. Maybe you had to be here to appreciate it- but it was wickedly funny.
Every time I think about it, I am reduced to a helpless, cackling jelly.
