ZOOM down the highway, ZOOM down the highway

It is not very likely that a musician can develop an “Ear Bug”. With interesting music, I immediately start to deconstruct it in my head. What is the key? What, if any, are the cord changes? Etc., etc.

Inadvertently, however, cuteness will get stuck in my mind.

Today I was heading to the Kirkland office for a power lunch. If there is no traffic, the two offices are only ten minutes apart by a cleverly designed highway transportation system.

There was no traffic today; I noticed I was zooming down the highway.

And that’s when the baby song hit me. I remember bouncing Thing One on my knee and singing:

“ZOOM down the highway, ZOOM, down the highway, ZOOM down the highway… STOP!”

At the “STOP” you would then let the baby “fall” to the floor, only to be “caught” at the last minute. Thing One really thought that was funny. He would giggle and giggle.

How do you get that out of your mind? You do not. I just sucked it up, turned off the radio and started singing!

“ZOOM down the highway, ZOOM down the highway, ZOOM down the highway… CHANGE LANES!”

Soon I was bouncing in my seat.

I am sure anyone looking at me must have thought I was crazy man.

I am a sucker for cuteness. The Hack Writer brought this cuteness overload to you; no need to thank me, that is just the kind of guy I am.

Perhaps tomorrow I will compensate by talking about the relative merits of jacket hollow point 9mm ammunition at 124 grains instead of 147.

    Oh my goodness! The thought of him hitting the brakes on the highway in time to the song had me rolling!

    So what is a person to think if they wake up three days straight with “If you want it, here it is, come and get it, but you better hurry cause it might not last…” running through her mind? I can’t even remember the last time I HEARD that song!
