countdown: 3 days

in deference to shelley, auden, pound, thomas, browning, coleridge, and the mighty gre, today's post is quite abbreviated.

TRUE or FALSE?

"I see friends shaking hands, saying, 'how do you do?' they're really saying 'i, i love you.' "

by 'true or false?' i'm primarily referring to the second clause. for extra points, where did i acquire this quote?
(deceiving hint: not from anything related to the gre)

Shoot, thats the song "Its a Wonderful World" by ... dang, I can't remember. Oh, is it Louis Armstrong?

andrew said...

well, not quite. as far as i can tell, it's from 'somewhere over the rainbow.'

andrew said...

but, dude(s), you didn't answer the more important question...is a hand shake between friends just a more socially acceptable way of saying 'i love you'?

Whitney said...

This line is DEFINITELY from "It's a Wonderful World" by Louie Armstrong. Not "Over the Rainbow"! "I see trees of green, red roses too...."

andrew said...

atually, you're both right. it turns out that i was listening to a 'somewhere over the rainbow / it's a wonderful world' hybrid. sorry for the confusion.

here check it out (track 14) for yourself:
