Another great prompt and actually sort-of-perfect for this Friday the Thirteenth!  My mind just keeps jumping to the old Stevie Wonder classic, “Superstition.”  I am listening to it and grooving right now – (do you see how I got yesterday’s prompt in there too?)  I pulled up the lyrics for inspiration and boy-oh-boy did I have them wrong.

That absolutely drives my daughters crazy… I love to sing along with my music and if I am not sure what the song is saying I just make something up.  They hate it, but I am having fun.  A lot like a post I read yesterday about dancing.  I sing because I love it.  I sing while I work, I sing while I sew, I sing to my classes, I sing in the car.  I love it.

Anyway, back to Stevie Wonder…. this is how it goes:

Stevie Wonder sings: “Thirteen month old baby broke the looking glass…”

Mom sings: “Thirty year old ladies, walking in the grass…”

Stevie Wonder sings: “Keep me in your daydreams…”

Mom sings: “Keep me in your yayyaymmmsss (I don’t even try here)”

Now that I am singing, I guess I should.. Step. Away. From. The. Computer.  Yes, shut it down, blast some music and go unpack my suitcase from last week’s trip.  Do some laundry.  Walk the dog.  Plant those starts a friend gave me.  Make iced tea.  Thin the carrots.  Think about dinner…..

  1. Thanks for mentioning the Stevie Wonder song. Its been wandering around in the back of my mind since I chose superstition as the prompt. I knew there was a song, and I couldn’t get it out of deep storage. You did, thanks! And I love your interpolated lyrics–they are fun!
