Since ‘Hump Day’ is already used by a favorite blogger I follow, I have to use ‘Wayback Wednesday’ today I guess.
You see, my new school girl isn’t old enough to appreciate Hump Day yet. Doesn’t know what it means or how it feels.
This morning our car was a bit wet due to the dew point the night before. So I rolled my window down as well as Dylan’s on the way to school so I and she could see out.
A few minutes later I hear Ms. Chirpy behind me saying in her playful voice, “Hello house. Hello swing set. Hello mailbox. Hello bird. Hello clouds.
It was cute as could be and as I turned around to say something to her I see she has her new Winkx Club doll hanging out the window, like the doll was greeting everyone she saw instead of Dylan. Can you picture that?
She continued on, “Hello sun. Hello road. Hello cat. Hello runner.”
Do you think she will be this happy going to school 5 years from now?
With her, probably.
Evidently this whole new going to school thing (at 6.45am) isn’t getting her down yet. She is doing great with it. And her teacher has nothing but nice things to say. ~ Her button got to stay on Green yesterday as the rest of the class had to move their buttons to Yellow for talking too much. Atta girl Dylan!
Her mood is a great transition to my Wayback Wednesday…since Hump Day was taken.
There is a new jean commercial on TV that resurrects a lost classic from the 70’s. I saw the commercial a few times this weekend before I had to do a search on MyTube to hear the whole thing, Jeans On.
Jeans On was one of my favorite songs when I was little. It was a favorite song before I knew what music I was supposed to like, or band or singer. I just heard it on my parent’s radio and always liked it. It’s one of those lost classics that just don’t get replayed too much from that era…until now.
And Dylan’s upbeat mood this morning just replicates the kind of tempo this song carries. It carries a real cool mellow tune. It reminds me of waking up on a sunny Saturday morning in my youth when there is nothing scheduled the whole day. …A weekend of the past! My wife even liked it so it can’t be too bad!
So if you need an attitude pick me up or boost to get you through today here is Jeans On…and you can practice your “chichi’s”. Go ahead you know you will….
Did I tell you I love that song!
I used to think he sang, “Coco jeans on” which for some reason I thought was cool too when I was young
This song reminded me of a few other favorite songs that I long to hear but rarely do from this past. There are several, I am sure. But here are the other two unique songs that don’t come across my parent’s radio any more….that also get you in the day. I think I like them because they are timeless in a sense. That is they are not representative of any particular era. And that unusual beat or melody just kinda sticks with you.
This first one, I’m not quite sure she is talking about roller skating all the time. What do you think?
I didn’t think they did symbolism like that back in the 70’s
If you all have at least one ‘ear worm’ now my Hump Day Wayback Wednesday job here is done!
Have a GREAT rest of the week! It’s all downhill from here….
