Ear Worms - Sounds kind of icky, doesn't it?
I heard about them while listening to the Dr. Dean Edell Show on WLS 890AM Talk Radio on Sunday morning. They're not as bad as they sound.
Ear worms are those songs that keep running through your head, sometimes at night while you're trying to sleep or even during the day. Usually the first song I hear in the morning when I'm half asleep is the one that stays in my mind. I end up humming it the rest of the day. Someone said the way to stop an ear worm is to deliberately change the words or pattern of the song. I don't know if it works, since I haven't tried it yet.
So now you know about ear worms. What about books you've read that stay in your mind long afterwards? Book worms are the people reading the books, so we can't call them that. Maybe we could call them eye or mind worms.
Is there one that you can't you forget? It doesn't have to be a classic. It could be non-fiction, a thriller, mystery, romance, you name it. Please share.
