My family has an absolute favorite car game. It’s our own…
Someone names a theme, phrase, noun, etc. and the rest of the people in the van have to come up with a song that goes with it. It amazes my kids the songs my husband and I know. Shiloh was particularly impressed this evening when I could sing a song that had sno-cone in it.
Well, we fogged up the windows in my old Chevy
I was willing but she wasn’t ready
So I settled for a burger and a grape sno-cone
Dropped her off early but I didn’t go home
Down by the river on a Friday night
A pyramid of cans in the pale moonlight
Talking ’bout cars and dreaming ’bout women
Never had a plan, just living for the minute
Yeah, way down yonder on the Chattahoochie
Never knew how much that muddy water meant to me
But I learned how to swim and I learned who I was
A lot about living and a little ’bout love
Anyway, it’s a blast to see what people can come up with.
Anyone want to play?
Here’s the deal. I’m going to make a list, I want you to come up with a song (or phrase from a song) with that word or phrase.
I’m quite anxious to see what you come up with. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments and if you like, post a list for me!
I wanted to mention that if CVS is out of the items you are wanting, please, please request a raincheck. I recommend saving the ad paper the item is in as well.
Now, let me know how you did!
I thought this was a great story my daughter’s reading teacher told me about an incident that happened in class a few weeks ago.
In my daughter’s reading class, she came across a sentence that said He was a good rapper and liked to sing.
Well, Shiloh raised her hand and asked the teacher what a rapper was. The class burst into laughter. Her teacher got the class to stop laughing and said, “Rapper, one who raps.”
Her classmates continued asking her, “Haven’t you heard of this guy or so and so.” This continued until the teacher intervened and said it’s really okay for someone to not listen to rap music and to leave Shiloh alone.
And of course, they didn’t. And Shiloh’s teacher was much impressed. And Shiloh’s mom thinks she’s one cool kid!
