At TJ's, totally awesome music was being piped in through the speakers. All late 50's and early 60's music. Fantastic stuff, that is. It got to the point that I was dancing and singing in the produce section while Kaitlin whispered, "You're embarassing me, Mom!" Yeah, she's four years old. I thought I had ten more years before I embarassed her. I didn't even know she knew the meaning of the word, nevermind putting it in context and italics. As I am bebopping around the store, Kaitlin is following at a distance that people would think she was a mature four year old shopping all by herself. By the end of our shopping experience, I had heard music from the Beatles, the Supremes and Herman's Hermits. In fact, the song "Henry the 8th" was just ending as I got into line to pay for my purchases. I was so excited that Herman's Hermit's was on that I asked the teenage cashier if he liked them. He looked at me as if I asked if they had pig head in stock. (If you don't know what that look is- it's look combining disgust, fear, confusion and curiosity. I'm sure there was a mixture of, 'this lady's crazy' in there, but not enough to tip the scale) So, I proceeded to embarass my daughter, who was actually two people behind me in line waiting to buy the things a mature four year old shopping all by herself would purchase, by asking the cashier, "Have you ever seen that movie Ghost? Or, do you not have a girlfriend that would make you watch that movie?" I thought I said it jokingly. But, you see, it's only a joke if he did have a girlfriend. "It's in that movie. It's the part where he's trying to keep the psychic awake. He's just screaming it." The very embarassed (because I let everyone know he didn't have a girlfriend) cashier said, "Oh, that song 'Melody off the hook'?"
"Uhhh... 'Unchained Melody', you mean- goodness, no! That song is by the Everly Brothers, well not originally..."
"No, still don't know the song. I can check in the back if we have any pig's head..."
"No, no that's ok. But you know who the Everly Brothers are, right?"
"Yeah, aren't they the guys who grown women like you have dreams about?"
"No, that's Zac Efron, Edward and Jacob"
"I don't know what you're talking about now. Would you like help with your groceries? Please say no."
