Dinner Music

"Mama," my eight-year-old son said.  "I think we should light some candles for dinner."

Apparently tuna noodle casserole was bringing out the romantic side of the little man.  "Okay, Bubba," I said.  "I'll light some candles."

After the candles were lit, we sat down to eat. 


"Yes, Bubba?"

"We need a little music to go with the candle light dinner."

Of course.  "What kind of music would you like?"

He thought about that for a minute and then got up and went to the phone.  He pressed a button to activate the ring tone.  It was "Liebestraum" by Franz Liszt.  "Perfect," he said. (He didn't even seem to mind that he had to get up every ten seconds to continue the music.)

Such was our candlelight dinner.  So ladies and gentlemen, if you want a perfectly romantic dinner, make yourself some tuna noodle casserole, light a few candles, and grab your phones!


  1. Oooh I love lighting candles at dinner too. Not so sure about the phone music though!

  2. Sounds just right, unless the phone were to die.

  3. Haha! I'll remember this. :)

  4. Oh, that Bubba. He's so cute I could eat him with a spoon.


    1. Ha! Just please don't roast him in the oven first. ;)

  5. Aww, that's sweet. Have a great weekend!

  6. I don't think my ring tone would be conducive to a good meal. It's screaming monkeys.

  7. Bubba sure does have good taste in music, and he's smart, too. Everybody knows any food tastes better with a little candlelight and music.

  8. Now that's the makings of a memorable meal!

    1. I see trouble brewing around the corner with all the women who are going to be chasing him!

  10. How cute with your son thinking of this; I hope his romantic side continues through his dating, courtship, married years (years way ahead of course); some young lady will surely appreciate it!!!

    have a good rest of the weekend!
