Alex has been sick and has stayed home from school this week. So I've been driving the partners in crime by myself.
I bring my music so they can listen to that instead of goading each other into an argument. Good in theory, not so good in practice.
I turned the music on shuffle so I can't be accused of giving someone's music choice preferential treatment.
First song up, "Soul Sister" by Train. Jeffrey starts belting out the lyrics turning towards Katherine while singing.
"MOM! Jeffrey is calling me a soul sister."
"Isn't that rude?"
"Not the last time I checked".
She crossed her arms and stared out the window unconvinced.
Up next Mony Mony by Billy Idol.
Jeffery once again begins singing away.
"Here she comes now sayin' Mony Mony
Shoot 'em down, turn around you look like a pony"
"MOM! Jeffrey said I look like a horse."
"No I didn't. I said you look like a pony."
"Jeffrey if you're going to sing please stick to the ACTUAL words of the songs instead of making up your own."
Song #3 and we have Thriller.
Deciding I probably wasn't in the mood for poorly timed humor she accepted his apology.
I will have a relaxing uneventful morning drive one day, but I have a feeling it won't be anytime soon.
