My theme song

My husband, who recently bought a new cell phone, set up a special ringtone just for calls from me.

It’s the first few bars of this song:

This has been my unofficial theme song ever since the first day of college, way back in 1991.  I was checking into the dorm and the R.A. (resident assistant), a senior, saw that my name was Virginia.  “Come out, Virginia, don’t let me wait,” he started to sing.  I stared at him, suspicious and perplexed;   I’d never heard the song before.

But really, when you’re a Catholic girl named Virginia, you just sort of own this song, you know?
