A hot topic...

We've all heard it from Dr. Phil and other such experts, "Don't fight in front of your children it makes them worry about the stability of their home." Well apparently it's not good to say the word "hot" in front of children either unless of course you are referring to your dearest love.

I learned this today while cranking the tunes to get through my drudge work. It was when Michael Hutchence from Inxs began to tell me that he Needs Me Tonight that I got into trouble. It wasn't entirely my fault though. I mean Paige started it after all when she proclaimed, "He is so hot." To which I agreed then added, "Yes he is. We must look at him right now." So I pulled him up on YouTube and proceeded to Ooo and Ahh with Paige.

Fast forward about 20 minutes...

I continued to work in the kitchen when Paige came to tell me, "Just for future reference, you probably shouldn't say guys are hot in front of B. (cousin). She went upstairs and told S. (honorary cousin) that you just called a guy hot and S. said 'SHE DID?!' So you kind of freaked them out."

To which I replied, "I don't have a problem with that. I'm sorry. The man is hot. And besides I thought he was hot when I was a teen girl, before I was married, so it's all good."

I love the memories that can be triggered simply by listening to a song. Inxs, particularly the song "Need You Tonight", takes me instantly back to driving down the road (Southern to get to school--Broadway to go see friends) in my little blue Karmann Ghia


with my big AquaNet hair blowing out the opened window. I loved that song and when it would come on the radio it filled me with instant sass. I'd crank it as loud as I could and sing along while exchanging glances with certain passersby of the male persuasion. So fun.

Because of memories such as these, "Need You Tonight" will always be one of my favorite songs and Michael Hutchence will always be HOT to me. Smokin' baby. But let me assure my dear niece and honorary niece that they don't need to worry. I will not be leaving my dearest love anytime soon for this dead eighties star-- who happens to be very HOT-- for two reasons...

1) I love my dearest love and don't want any other man and

2) Well... he's dead.

That is very funny. I was at the video store earlier today looking for a family movie to watch and came across The Spy Next Door. The girlfriend I was with gave me a funny look and I replied " Billy Ray." I think she understood but the lady down the aisle gave me a very funny look. Eddie Vedder is my favorite from high school.

My sister once heard my mom say a guy at White Hen had a cute butt (I know, we traveled in swanky circles) and promptly rushed home to tattle to my dad.

She still can't keep a secret to save her life.
