This morning started out like most other mornings. I had to tear myself off my mattress and try not to fall down the stairs to get my morning coffee. Today was one of the morning I would be taking live-in #1 to school, middle school that is, so I started the truck to get it all warm and cozy. When I got into the truck I noticed the music was turned down too low to hear so I turned it up, one minutes later I turned it back down...it appears Alanis Morrissette is not a good match for me in the mornings.
But then, as I am pulling into the parking lot of live-in #1's middle school, my spirits perked up I came awake with a start...Usher was singing none other than my favorite 2011 boating song. It was my number one song on my playlist. I would play it Loud and Proud on the boat and we all loved it. The song took me back to a July afternoon when I took a boat full of girls out surfing, leaving the guys in our dust...or should I say ripples since we were on the water...
So I only saw if fitting that this morning at 7:45 a.m. I once again play it Loud and Proud...BUT alas I forgot where were were at and how live-in #1 gets very embarrassed by my antics at times. She immediately turned it WAY down so I turned it back UP, she turned it down again and I turned it back up, told her this was my car and began to work on getting my groove on. She was NOT impressed. So I turned it down, only a little, so she could get out of the car and begin her walk run of shame into the school as her mother was obviously deliriously high on Usher...then I turned the music back up and fought the temptation to completely humiliate my daughter by dancing my way out of the parking lot.
When the song was over I went back to normal volume and Live-In #2 told me he thought he might be deaf now. But I don't care....I needed to channel my inner winterized boating soul!
After all....DJ's got me falling in love!
