Do you ever play the Song Game? I play it every day. It is beyond my control, really, just something ingrained in my brain.
When my 11-year-old daughter comes home and says, "I was late for class", it makes me want to sing a song with those lyrics. But I always try to refrain.
It's a little bit funny, really. I mean, I'm in this kitchen trying not to think about anything but getting lunches made when one of my kids will say, "Mom! I had an awesome dream last night!" Or, "Close your mouth! I think you're gross!" I can't help myself...I think of a song. Or Allen will ask me about the towhead's potty training: "Is it getting better?" and I want to respond by continuing the song he started.
The most common phrases that set me off are:
"I don't know how you do it",
"What do you think?", and
"It's a beautiful day!"
I guess you could say I'm a little bit shy about just breaking out in song. But I think it's better that way, wouldn't you agree? People already think I have a crazy life. I don't need to prove them right.
Do you play the song game, too? Do you know the songs that match the lyrics in red?
