Strange Happy Place

I'm sure we all have more than one "Happy Place". While driving in the car the other day we were switching the radio station around and ACDC Back In Black came on. When the song ended my 13 year old daughter said, "Geesh Mom you kind of zoned out" I guess I completely stopped talking and was drumming on the stick shift of the car and even bobbing my head around a little. TOTALLY unconsciously! My son called out from the back sit, "Mom's happy place is old acid rock!" Who knew?

However, when we got home I saw my son looking for the song on-line and I asked if he was trying to embarrass me and he said, "No, it's a cool song and I think I'd like it on my mp3. Maybe I'm not the dowdy suburban mom I thought I was after all.

Rock on....

I loved that sound in college, actually I still do.
You are so NOT dowdy :)

You ARE cool.
We watched Rock Star Supernova with the kids. It was so fun to hear the old rock and new rock together!

Old acid rock!? Man, there's nothing strage about AC/DC, and it's definitely happy. Takes me back to grade school/high school. Cruising main in Ness City, trying to find out where everyone was going to drink that night. AC/DC -- especially Back in Black -- will always hold a special place in my heart.

I can't wait to hear what my four year old will thing of my heavy metal when he's your kids' age.

Sara: Next you and your skinny ASS I am dowdy!
Wendy: My son loved Rock Star Supernova, but they liked Toby.
Jeff: Dylan downloaded it, so it will live on. 40 is slowly stalking us!
