For reasons that are not at all clear to me, I was singing Isaac Hayes’ brilliant Theme from Shaft as I was preparing lunch in my kitchen just now. I was belting it out…
“Who’s the black private dick who’s a sex machine to all the chicks? (Shaft!) You’re damn right.”
“Who is the man that would risk his neck for his brother man? (Shaft!) Can ya dig it?”
…when I dumped a container of noodles onto my plate. It was a shaft of noodles!
What a wondrous world.
