Dreading the Day "That's the Way (I Like It)" Comes On

Conversation in the car today:

Jarrah: What San Diego Old School?

Sam: It's music you can dance to...for people Mommy's age.

Jarrah: What this song? Break house?

Sam: "Brick House." He's singing about a girl...and she's big and strong.

Jarrah: And what else?

Sam: And he wants to dance with her.

Jarrah: And then what?

Sam: They dance and...she's very powerful.

The song ends. "Slow Hand" by the Pointer Sisters starts up.

Sam: Cool! [turning it up]

Jarrah: What this one about?

Sam: It's about hugging people.

Jarrah: And then what?

Sam: And how you should take your time. Not rush. Because hugging is really nice.

Jarrah: And then what?

Sam: And that's pretty much it.

And that's when I pull out the patented, "Shush now, Honey, Mommy has to concentrate on the road." :)

And Jarrah's smarter than me. I think I just now thought about that Pointer Sisters song's lyrics for the first time.

I'm with Caroline. I was going to suggest turning up the volume. Children these days ask too many dang questions!!!

Cute Jarrah. :)

Have a missed your movie being posted somewhere?

I had no idea that oldies music was such a minefield of innuendo!

That's why I only let my kids listen to hip-hop.

Yes, we had a similar conversation over Katy Perry's "I Kissed a girl." Good times.
