...my child sold your honor student the answers to the test...

We didn't have Chick-Fil-A in Mass, where I'm orignally from. I guess it's some huge thing down here. People go mad for cravings when you even mention waffle fries. Their food is good for sure. Ok their waffle fries rock. And I love their chicken strips. And their dipping sauce reminds me of the awesome sauce you get for the snowbird chicken at Bugaboos Steak House. But I digress on why I'm writing.

A few weeks ago while purusing FB I noticed someone craving Chick-Fil-A and someone posted a link. Curious minds wanted to know what was in the link and I clicked it. And it was the funniest. Song. Ever.

I now have this song stuck in my head constantly.

So today the kids and I headed out to the store in search of outside toys: bubbles, chalk, paddle balls, etc. As we're cruising the aisles in search of fun stuff, "Yesterday" starts to play. And of course, I start to sing "CHick=Fil-A". As I'm rocking out, Xavier turns to me in shock:

"Mom! What are you singing?"
"That's not what they're playing on the radio!!!"
"It's the same tune."
"So, I hear this tune and I thought of Chick-Fil-A. It makes me laugh."
"Can you... can you please, ummm..."
/whispers "Can you please stop singing?"
"People are staring at you Mom."

Sigh... always a critic

LOL, that's so funny!!! Imagine US embarrassing our kids when they're the ones usually embarrassing us!!!

I change lines to songs all the time and my kids are always like, "That's not what the song is saying". Geez, don't they know how to have fun?

We don't have a Chick-Fil-A here and I've heard people rave about the food. Guess I'll have to check it out if we ever visit a place that has it!

Yeah I dont know why kids are so uptight about changing the words to songs. My 3 yr old is the same. Sigh. One day they too, will morph a much loved song into something silly. And I will be right there, an old granny in my rocker, yelling "THOSE AREN'T THE WORDS! STOP SINGING THAT! AND GIT OFF MAH LAWN!"
