My daughter and I are in the car on our way to LEGO camp, when I hear a song come on Pandora that instantly takes me back to high school! The lyrics are pretty silly so I thought I would bring my daughter’s attention to it. The song we thoroughly enjoyed was “She Don’t Use Jelly” by the Flaming Lips. Take a moment to enjoy it if you like! I don’t think you could regret it.
My daughter listened intently to the lyrics and once she realized what they were saying, she threw her head back and laughed out “That’s so silly!! Mom, it’s just such a silly song!” and she’s right. It is, but we cracked up over it and wondered why the people would do what they did in the song! We sang along, with smiles on our faces, I might add, and when it was over, she wanted to hear it again. Oops, no rewind in Pandora radio world. Regardless, this was the highlight of my day!! Just pure fun and lightheartedness! Thank you, Flaming Lips, for once again providing the soundtrack to another memorable life moment.
There is cause for concern, though. Now she wants to know if tangerines really will color your hair orange, and she wants me to be the test subject! Yikes!
