Listening In

You know you've been married for awhile when...

You are driving in a car. Your kids complain of being cold.

You respond, "Hang on a minute, the heat is on and you will be warm soon."

A phrase tickles your brain and you are about to shout it out, when your husband beats you by mere nano-seconds (in official time) belting out a song from back in the day...

Yeah, we're that cool.

Or maybe we are just products of the 80s.

Come on, admit it, how many of you would have done the same thing?
(and how many of you young ens are still wondering what the song was?)

Oh yeah, we are totally products of the 80's and know exactly what you are talking about. Darin and I have done this many times and right now the boys think it is funny to see mommy and daddy singing songs like that but I think in about 10-12 years (maybe sooner) they are going to think differently of mom and dads song memories :)

I sang it immediately when I saw the words in bold. This is so awesome. I hear it all in my head.

Of course, I am pretty known for making everything a song so I'm sort of predisposed.

I don't know the song...but it sounds like a winner! :) I wish it was 'cause I'm young, but I'm afraid that I'm a child of the 80's as well...but Japan 80's. Believe me, those aren't any better. If had said, Computer Obachan (translated: Computer Grandma), I could have song quite the interesting song. Believe me, it's as bad as it sounds. :)

Oh funny... I was singing it too before I read the rest! I tend to come up with a song for many random situations, which can get pretty obnoxious... unless you like an almost-constant soundtrack sung by a rarely on-key singer. So for the good of all mankind, I refrain. :) Fun post!

I don't know the song! What's wrong with me. I lived through the 80's. Maybe I was just too young then. You guys are funny!!!

Renata said...

Know the song! My hubby & I do that sometimes as well - it's probably because we just know each other so well!

Heidi said...
