SMILF: Thank You Rhythm Nation

Last night Sydney came busting in the front door.

“We were just listening to Rhythm Nation!”

After I busted out my oh-so-cool Rhythm Nation moves in my head I said, “You mean the old Rhythm Nation, like Janet Jackson?”

She looked at me like I had just spoken Greek to her – “Who??”

Thanks. I feel old now.

But when Robert came in I knew I could make myself feel young again.

“So, I heard you guys were listening to Rhythm Nation on the way here – I totally used to rock out to that.”

He laughed and said, “Yeah, me too!”

I said, “The only difference is that you were probably rocking out to it in your car while driving while I was merely rocking out to my lavender Barbie “boombox” in my bedroom filled with stuffed animals.”

“Yup, a new 1988 red Beretta…I was so cool.”

“I was so eight years old.”

Thanks. I feel much younger again now.

Ashley - Yes, I love it! I can always count on my husband to make me feel young again. A bonus to marrying a man older than me. Ha!
