I think that Mango laid the guilt-trip pretty heavily on my Mom, because here is a Second Post In One Day. This is a new world record for my Mom, who is also known as The Person Who Takes The Longest Time EVER To Post A Blog.
For those of you who don't know, Dad is a musician. Because of 'work' he hasn't played in front of real, live audiences in something like 15 years (I don't count Mom, TaiChi, and Bufus as an audience - you need like 50 people to be a real audience. You also need, oh, I dunno, all sorts of things that professional musicians have, like roadies and stuff. I know all this stuff because I watch TeeVee, BTW.) But, Dad has decided to 'get back into' his music.
Mom refers to this as his 'Mission From Gawd' and says something about how Dad should be driving around in an old black and white Crown Vic, and saying that "he's getting the band back together".
Did I ever mention that my Mom might possibly be losing it? Of course, my grandparents (Mom's parents) keep referring to Dad as 'Elwood', so maybe it's genetic.
So Dad's been studying and practicing, and on occasions like tonight, composing. Because I am Daddy's Little Girl, he performed a song in my honor. (Yep, that's right. A song about ME!!!!) Mom filmed it on her little camera, so it's kinda hard to hear, so I have provided the lyrics for you:
I got a dog named Fi
I paid money for her
I got her from a place
They said they were a breeder
I got a dog
Lord knows her name is Fi
Yeah, she said she's a poodle
The rest really confuses me
(Thank you, thank you very much, uh-huh!)
Don't worry - I'll explain the P-Mod thing later.
But lookit me! I'm a Movie Star!!!
