80-word dialogue

Child: Mommy, are there monsters under my bed?

Mom: There are no monsters in this house, sweetie.

Child: Are you sure? What if they are just hiding from you and only want to eat me?”

Mom: Monsters don’t eat children. You’re safe!

Child: How do you know that?

Mom: Monsters only like to feast on the biggest, fattest and juiciest meals!

Child: Oh……. Mommy, I don’t want you to die!

Mom: I won’t! Wait a second… Did you just call me…

Child: Aunt Tina always says you are fat!



So I decided to start a blog. I don’t expect anyone to read my posts but thought it would be fun to join others in publishing my thoughts about this and that.
First off, I wanted to share this video because I have about 6 months before this song stops being age appropriate. It is a nice reminder to enjoy it while it lasts. Something we don’t always remember to do. Also, since I anticipate a lot of my blog to be music related, I think this song nicely illustrates how I feel about “top 40” music. Poor Taylor Swift gets a lot of hate these day. Sure her voice isn’t the best out there, but she writes a mean song (no pun intended….heh). I will generally appreciate any pop artist that I think has talent (especially of the songwriting kind), unlike some people who refuse to enjoy popular music under any circumstance.
I would write a nice concluding paragraph to my first post….but who am I kidding. I’m not here to impress anyone with my writing skills or thoughtfulness. So that’s it for my first post. Short and sloppy. :)
