A year ago I realized that the Built to Spill lyric “Seven-up, I touched her thumb and she knew it was me/Although she couldn’t see, unless of course she peeked,” referred to the elementary classroom game Seven-Up. I heard part of that song just an hour ago. I switched off the lights and turned off my CD player before heading out to get some groceries. That CD was on and that lyric played just before I hit the stop button. That’s when I realized that at the end of the round of Seven-Up in question, she would have guessed correctly that it was him who had touched her thumb, and that’s how he knew that she knew it was him. Previously, I hadn’t thought any further than him touching her thumb. I assumed that the two of them just had a silent understanding that he had picked her.
