Milo James Fowler is hosting a Freebies special – Tis More Blessed. “If you have a book/eBook/short story/collection you'd like to give away or raffle off on Friday December 6th, Friday the 13th, Friday the 20th, or Friday the 27th, just enter your name and the date(s) of your giveaway under Link Title.”
I'll be giving away copies of my books on each of the Fridays, so be sure to stop by at my place, and all the other author's places for a chance to win books.
And now for the story:
I was driving my kids around town today. We had several stops, which meant they had to spend a lot of time in the car. To break the monotony, they decided it would be great fun to belt out songs that were on the radio.
I grimaced. "Kids, that's insulting to my ears! Can you be a little quieter and less scratchy?"
"No, Mama," my son said. "I'm going to be the best singer in the world! I need to practice."
"Yeah, mom. We're rock stars!" my daughter chimed in.
They shouted the lyrics at the top of their lungs.
"Could you at least sing in tune?" I implored, wishing I had a pair of headphones to block out the cacophony.
"We are in tune," said my son.
"Okay. Maybe it's the music selection. How about you sing something like Beethoven's ninth symphony?"
I saw my daughter grimace in the rear view mirror. "No, Mom. That music makes my ears bleed!"
"Your ears?" I said. "What about mine?"
"Yeah. I think Beethoven's ninth would make your ears bleed, too!"
