I wrote this tune and thought of my fiancé’s guinea pig, Sondheim. If you’ve ever seen a guinea pig "popcorn" — a gleeful hop and twist when excited — you’ll understand. For those that haven’t, here’s a YouTube video of someone else’s guinea pig "popcorning":

Or write a companion jig in that name. Years ago we had fun on the mustard board writing a tune by consensus. No idea what it was called so can’t find it now - turned out okay.
