Totally awkward Tuesday

Hosted by Tova Darling, go check it out!

I was driving home from the amusement park on Saturday and we were listening to an alternative station on the radio. The boys are all musically inclined, and have eclectic tastes in music, so we have similar likes. When Insane in the Membrane came on, I cranked it. And then I realized I wasn't alone in the car, and I had no idea how they felt about being subjected to Cypress Hill at full volume.

As I was turning it back down, I said, "Sorry guys, that was really loud". One of my son's friends from the back seat pipes up with "It wasn't too loud, you're too old". I thought that was funny as hell, but the poor kid started furiously back-peddling. "Mrs. S, I didn't mean for it to come out like that. My uncle says it all the time - if it's too loud you're too old. But I didn't mean YOU were old...". I was still laughing my ass off, and wasn't about to cut him any slack. "It's too late, kid; you can't fix it". Good thing a half hour earlier he had already told me I was the coolest mom ever or he might have been walking home.

Reminds me of the time my dad took my bff Holly & I to Boston to go shopping at all the record stores. Somehow the topic of Ronald Reagan came up, I think he had just been inaugurated, and Holly says to my dad (a Republican), "Ronald Reagan is such a BASTARD!" I guffawed and said, "HOLLY!" Poor girl was six shades of red, apologizing all over the place....my dad thought it was a hoot.

Obviously you cranked that song. Good tune! A kid who both complimented you and made you laugh in the same day? Very cool.

haha, that's hilarious! Even better that you were able to laugh. It can be an inside joke now between you two. My nephew and I are always joking about old people even though I am one! I'll sometimes use it as an excuse. "I'm going to sit here for a bit because that's what old people do!"

Poor kid, but I agree with his uncle. Turn it up!
