Sad Songs Say So Much
Julia-Kate and Rachel.
Tonight as we were driving home from a Father's Day celebration, 13 year old Rachel was listening to her ipod when 2 year old Julia-Kate said she wanted to listen too. Rachel shared one of the earphones and they listened together. Temporarily. I'll let you in on the conversation that ensued:
Julia-Kate: I don't want to listen to this song.
Rachel: Ok, I'll pick another one.
Julia-Kate: I want a sad song.
Rachel: A sad song? Ok, let me find one. Try this one.
Julia-Kate: (listens for a few seconds) That's not sad!
Rachel: Ok, ok, let me get a different one. Ok, this one's sad for real.
Julia-Kate: (listens to new one for a few seconds longer than the first song, and then pulls the earphone from her ear, hands it back to Rachel and says..."I can't listen to this".
I thought I'd die laughing. Where do these people come from?
