"Sorry, Bubba," I said. "What were you dreaming about?"
"Cookies and mashed potatoes."
I tried not to laugh. "Really? Was it a good dream?"
"Yeah. Because mashed potatoes are my favorite food, and I was hoping for a cookie after breakfast."
(Keep hoping kid. It's not going to happen!)
Then I went to my daughter's room to wake her up.
After she cleared her morning groggies, she had this question: "Mom, what's the difference between a hippy and a groovy? "
"Well, a hippy is a dude from the seventies with long hair. He usually wears bell-bottom pants and funky shirts. I have no idea what a groovy is."
"I think he's a surfer dude," my daughter suggested.
Okay. Whatever. I have no idea where this conversation came from, but if any of you have an answer to what the difference between a hippy and a groovy is, please let me know!
Finally, I'd like to share my daughter's new favorite song: It's number one on the charts and it's called the Harlem Shuffle. She made me watch this video last night. ( I think the dude in the orange pants might be a groovy.)
All I could do was shake my head and wonder what this world is coming to. They call this music? I think I'll go listen to a Beethoven Symphony now. You all have a nice day!
