Love Is In The Air

Sydney was talking to Kim on the way home from school the other day. She told Kim that she picked out a new boyfriend at school. OK. Kim asked if the boy knew. Sydney explained that she hadn’t told him yet. Love is weird — when you are 6.

Fast forward to today when Sydney went to the store with Kim. She happened to glance at some posters and started screaming. What’s wrong? She had tears in her eyes! What? It’s Michael Jackson!!! Can I buy this? Please! Pretty please! OMG. Her first crush.

She came into the house and made me unroll it without telling me who was on it. I said…Oh, Michael! I looked up and Sydney had tears in her eyes. Can we hang it in my room? “Sure”, I said. “Now?”, she said. I think she meant “Right now, DAD!”

    The look on her face is pure joy!! LOL. I had the same poster on my wall way back in the 80’s.

    Syd, when Aunt Jamie was about your age in 1983, her favorite t-shirt had Michael Jackson’s picture on it. I wonder if it’s saved among all the other treasures in G’ma and Papa’s attic!

    Whoa, a Michael t-shirt! If the poster made her cry I think the t-shirt might make her faint. She now proclaims…”If he weren’t dead and I was the same age as him. I’d marry him. I really would. I’m not kidding Mom”

    OK Sydney….my favorite workout song is P.Y.T.

    My ipod is loaded with his music!

    Syd, I’m not kidding. Everytime I pull up this post, Michael is looking right at me. Thriller!
