a friend in ben

Any time I’m in a foul mood and want to lash out at things, I think I should just tell some stupid story about my life instead. Here’s one.

It was 1972, so I would have been 13, and I went to see the movie Ben at the Carolina, or maybe it was the Terrace.

When Michael Jackson started singing the title track to Ben, I started to embarrassingly weep right there in the movie theater.

Something snapped, apparently.

~~

Ben, the two of us need look no more 
We both found what we were looking for 
With a friend to call my own 
I’ll never be alone 
And you my friend will see 
You’ve got a friend in me
