I might have written a mini mini about a certain song. Best to just ignore this.
Sheldon was humming the tune to “Soft Kitty.” It had been stuck in his head since he woke up that morning, so he found himself humming it all day. It was starting to drive him a little crazy, but he also liked the tune. There was a reason why it always made him feel better when he was sick.
“Are you sick?” Leonard asked. He recognized “Soft Kitty” immediately. These days either Amy or Penny sang the song to Sheldon, but Leonard had been stuck with it enough times before those women came along.
“No. It’s just been playing in my head all day,” Sheldon told him before humming the song again.
As the day went on, Sheldon started making up various lyrics for the song while he went about his usual activities.
“Strawberry, blueberry, little cup of tea…” he sang while he made himself a cup of tea.
“Soft laundry, warm laundry, little bottle of softener…” he sang as he started his clothes washing.
It was breaking up the monotony of the song by making up new lyrics for it, but he was still going a little crazy. It seemed like every part of his life was getting put through the “Soft Kitty” filter. When Amy showed up later that night, he didn’t want to serenade her with yet another rendition of the song. Everyone else had told him to just shut up already.
Still, when she leaned into him to watch a movie together, new words to the song started running through his head. He found himself singing the song again before he could catch himself.
“Soft Amy, warm Amy, little ball of wool. Happy Amy, sleepy Amy, I love you,” he sang softly.
Amy turned to look at Sheldon.
“Sorry. It’s been in my head all day,” he said.
“You wanted to tell me that you loved me all day?” Amy asked. Then she leaned over and kissed him on the cheek.
“I meant the song. I wanted to tell you the other thing for much longer,” Sheldon admitted as he smiled down at his girlfriend.
