Editor’s Corner: L is for Lunes

In college, I rented a room in a house that was owned by a retired schoolteacher. He and his son lived upstairs; three of us girls rented rooms downstairs. His son was my age, but he should’ve been a teenager in the ‘50s and ‘60s. We used to cruise around looking for classic cars in our friend George’s ’65 Chevy.

Anyway, every Monday—winter, summer, rain, or shine—Eric would have The Mamas & The Papas on the record player and I’d be awakened to the “la, la…la, la, la, la” of the song “Monday, Monday.” Being a little obsessive, he wouldn’t play it just once. No, he’d set it to replay and it would go on and on until I was on my way to work or school.

Today, that earworm is still with me, and every Monday when I try to think of an Editor’s Corner title, I get stuck with it for the rest of the day. Thanks a lot, buddy.

Here is the rest of the “L” list as I promised Friday (from grammarbook.com):

lacks is deficient in
lax slack, easy-going
