An Oxymoronic Drive

The kids and I had a hysterical drive to co-op this morning.  Not hysterical in a roll-on-the-floor-laughing sense, but in that I was hysterical by the time we arrived at our destination.

My new car is set up with bluetooth that connects automatically to my phone when I get in the car.  The kids love playing music that we have downloaded to my phone.  We don’t have too many options, but they like what I have.

Charlie’s favorite song is the “Darth Vader Theme Song” while Maddie enjoys “Today is the Day” sung by the Women of Faith praise team. Nice, huh?

This morning they were arguing over the phone and whose music we were going to listen to, so I made the rule that one of them could play a song the entire way through, then the other could play a song the entire way through.

So our 25 minute ride went:

Dum, dum, dum-dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, duuuuummmm-  Imagine us speeding ominously down the dark and lonely backroads. Charlie pulls his hoodie over his eyes and we sit in silence. Then the cheerier-

Today is the day, you have made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!- Maddie and I sing the words to this song at the top of our lungs, until-

Dum, dum, dum-dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, duuuummmm. Again, silence from the backseat, as the sad string orchestra fills the car. I speed up a little.  Then-

Today is the day, you have made! I will rejoice and be glad in it! We immediately cheer up to sing this song again.

And this went on and on until we arrived at the church.

The phone stayed in my pocketbook for the ride home.
