Driving to work this morning, I was feeling a little down. Today was the kids' first day back at school after fall break, and middle daughter and I had a small exchange this morning that left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Basically, over the break her group of friends had some drama, and I was just asking her if everything was ok in that group.
She rolled her eyes and said, "Mom!"
Of course, I'm puzzled, because I think I'm just being a concerned parent, but to her, this is me being "too involved." So she cops an attitude, when I think I'm just being...supportive.
So I'm driving to work, and I'm kind of in a mood. Then, suddenly on the radio, there is this:
Instantly, I am transported back to high school. Driving along in my car, tapping the drum part on my steering wheel, and not a care in the world besides the English paper due at the end of the week. I smiled, and felt better.
Remember back when having a paper due, or who said what to who was the biggest worry in your life, or that your algebra teacher *coughMrCoecough* was a jerk? I want to go back there.
When I got to work, I settled in and opened up hulu.com, for my daily viewing of yesterday's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. I know, you wish you had my job. Really, you don't. Anyway, on Hulu's home page was a bunch of clips from old school Sesame Street. Talk about nostalgia, right? If the caption on this was correct, it was from season 4, or 1973. I was six. Who can forget this?
Wow, John John is pushing 40 about now too, right?
Just in case that's not quite enough, I had to look up my favorite Schoolhouse Rock song. And it's not even Conjunction Junction.
Enjoy. I did.
