I Just Happened to Think of This

I just happened to be sitting in front of the computer while thinking of this,so- lucky you! Oftentimes(like now I'm sure)the origin of a particular song title may well be more than you wanted to hear. Case in point, my tune entitled Grand Slam. No, it's not a baseball reference- I've never been much of a sports fan. Grand Slam was actually(and may still be)the name of a Denny's breakfast. I had just enjoyed same breakfast item, and ended up taking a ferocious shit soon thereafter, thinking to myself "gee I just took a Grand Slam Shit. They must name their breakfasts for the ferocity of the bowel movement that follows".

This was way back in 1985, as a road musician, and took place in either Texas or Nevada. What I just happened to think of is that I could've named the tune One O'Clock Dump.

Yes, sometimes it's dangerous to be too near a computer..
