And then a tune came on that I knew from my very core. A tune I even used to play on the piano. A tune I had to start singing...loudly...as soon as I pulled into the parking lot.
Me: "Oooh, I know this one!!!"
Little guy: "What is it?"
Me: "So many nights..." I crooned.
Little guy: "What's the name of the song, mom?"
Me: "I'd sit by my window..."
Little guy: "Mom..."
Me: "Waiting for someone to sing me his song."
Little guy: "Um..."
Me: "So many dreams I've kept deep inside me..."
Little guy: "God..."
Me: "Alone in the dark, but now you've come along."
Little guy: "MOM!!"
Me: "I'm getting to it! And...here it is, kid...you light up my life..."
Me: "Hey, I was just getting rolling."
Little guy: "You won the game, mom. It's over now."
Me: "Oh," as I got out of the car. "You give me hope..."
Little guy: "Do you want me to stay with you in the store?"
Me: "OK. I'll stop. Let's play again on the way home!!"
And we did!
