Sometimes my mind wanders places I wish it wouldn’t. Driving to and from the grocery store today I was listening to a CD* of 60s songs. This was one, originally from 1962.

And then my brain did That Thing, and I suddenly realized that the titular “girl,” allowing she was 18 in the song, would now be 74.

This is why real time is bad.

Short and stooped and pale and ugly, the hag of Ipanema goes hobbling, and when she passes each one she passes says "eccchhh!" :^)

Astrud Gilberto who sang it is closing in on 80 pretty fast I think.

She wasn't 18, so she is 73 now. Her name is Helô Pinheiro.

No offense meant, just mentioned it in case you'd like to see what she looks like.
