Explain my absence? I can. I’ve been adamantine about finishing a blog entry on the word “excogitate.” I’ve been adamantine about it being about LFO’s “Summer Girls” and dissecting it, proving it’s not just semi-rhyming gibberish. But after this section…
Let you off the hook like my man Mr. Limpet
Think about that summer and I bug, cause I miss it
Like the color purple, macaroni and cheese,
Ruby red slippers and a bunch of trees
…I’m almost ready to say, “it is gibberish” and move on. But then I wouldn’t be adamantine and I’d be ruining another word of the day. I will stay firm. Summer Girls excogitation to come.
