me (grooving along to a music cable channel): Ooooh! I haven't heard this song in AAAAAGES!
Dal acknowledges that he's heard me and continues staring at the television. He's possibly in a lack-of-LQ induced haze brought on by too many hours of sleep and movie watching.
me (still grooving while I put on my face): Oh wow, I love this song. I haven't heard it in ages!
Dal picks his ear.
me (standing stock still as Prince mesmerises me with his moves): Isn't his video just mesmerising? I haven't heard this song in ages!
Dal: Prince is a MAN.
me (searching the hotel room for some jellybeans. Still grooving): Oh goody! I haven't heard this song in AGES!
Dal waggles his bottom at me.
me: Good grief this is an oldie. I haven't heard this song--
then it hits me. I haven't heard ANY song in AGES. I am a mother of a 2 year old. I had better quit saying it before Dal does more than waggle his bottom at me.
