Newsic

Jarrah and drove around on Friday trying to find waterproof clothing for our trip to the snow (which, in February in San Diego, is a fool's errand) so we spent a lot of time in the car. One of the radio stations was having a "Founding Fathers of Rock" weekend to go with President's Day(s.) I explained to Jarrah that this was the reason we were hearing so many great songs in a row.

Sam: This can be the beginning of your music education.

Jarrah: What music education?

Sam: Well, I figure you gotta choose: you can know the words to every song in the world like your mommy, or you can be like your father and not recognize any songs at all.

Jarrah: Hmmm. I think I'll do both.

Sam: Oh?

Jarrah: Yeah, I can listen to songs with you, and I can listen to the radio with Daddy.

Sam: Oh, and by radio, you mean all the talking, right?

Jarrah: Right. Stories.

Sam: And what are these stories about?

Jarrah: (smiling) Dead people!

Sam: Oh, dear. And you enjoy these stories about dead people?

Jarrah: (smiling more) Yeaaaaaaah.

I think I'm being a little vague, but they listen to the news. Usually on NPR. But it really made me laugh that she had crystallized her description of "news" into "stories about dead people" because unfortunately that seems quite accurate. ;)

I love NPR. Meg does not. She says "turn off the talking."

I am one of those song-fakers. I know most of the words. Joy is much better than me, thankfully!

Love NPR, though!
