Sayonara Elvis!

Going about your normal routine, sometimes a little self absorbed, doing the things you normally do like getting in the car and turning on the radio.  You start a little swagger in your seat with the beat and soon you’re in full swing singing along with the radio.  You listen to the weather update, the traffic update and the sleeze report.  You’re laughing, it’s a good day!  They start playing the phone tap and you’re cracking up.  They work up the Topic train and you’re shaking your head in agreement and laughing!  Until a little voice behind you asks, “What stick does she want to smell Mommy?”  Oh CRAP!

Suddenly I realize, I’m carpooling a bunch of 4 year olds!  Who have no idea what Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show are talking about.  The potty talk is just way over their head and completely inappropriate for the ride to school.  I’m sad.  I’ve been listening to Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show for ages!  But alas, I’ve got to grow up and pray none of these 4 years olds go repeating to their parents any of the potty humor mention during our rides to school.  Yikes!

For my own sanity though, I can’t be singing the Wheels on the Bus or Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes on the way to school.  There has to be a happy medium.  So hello PANDORA!  You may have ads but at least they are short, sweet and clean.  Sorry Elvis, it’s been great, but I have to set an example, you know how it goes.  Turning off the radio and tuning into Pandora.

    you crack me up su. we definitely need to censor more around the kiddies.

  • Ha! We have Sirius XM and its been years since I listened to regular music. I hate children’s music but the children’s channel is not that bad but Rock and I argue over a few songs that are too painful to listen.
