“The Wombles” was a 1970s childrens’ [sic] TV show about a group of gentle, furry creatures—Wombles—who secretly lived on Wimbledon Common, London, recycling humans’ garbage. In one of the more unlikely developments in pop history, they went on to have five hit albums and a massive single, “Remember You’re a Womble.” The last was such an insidious ear-worm that a whole generation took to saying “Remember You’re a Womble” in order to conclude conversations, or sum up the ineffable moments of great emotion.
At least, that’s what I thought when I was a kid. Then I started leaving the house and socializing with people, and realized that, actually, in the whole world, it was only my dad who did that. Only my dad. Literally no one else but Dad.
