This morning while I was ordering my chai at Starbucks the song Fools Rush In was playing over their 'radio'. (I'm so dorking I don't even know what THAT is called.)
And as I waited and listened, I sang all the words in my head. I knew all the words.
As you know, I am lyrics impaired.
But this time, this song from the 40's, I knew all the words.
I wanted to say...I know all these words.
But I knew it would prove to Bethany and Alan that I am really really ancient.
Fool's Rush In is really even too old for me to know but my parents loved Frank Sinatra and we listened to him all the time. (other favorites were Montivani and Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass)
To this day, I do not think any male singer has taken his place as the most beautiful voice.
He is perfection to me.
Last night Katie and I spent a few hours working on balancing chemical equations.
She is not ready for this kind of 'math'. But being in a school...she has to be ready.
Do you want to know when I took Chemistry? Not until senior year at college.
It was know as "baby chem" and I waited until the very last opportunity to take it.
I did very well and I even remember enjoying the class.
My brain was ready to learn by the time I was 20.
I am a late bloomer.
Little Katie trying to do this at 13...let me just say...it's just too hard for her.
But the best thing about Katie is she tries real hard.
She has not given up and this late bloomer knows that my little late bloomer will be okay just as long as she keeps swimming.
We need one that says....balancing chemical equations.
Living in the land of greys and taupe....pictures like this really brighten my spirits.
Did I tell you?
I think the ladies going to premieres should bring flowers...like a bride....
Isn't that a good idea??
Enjoy your Friday, friends!
