Allergies, by the Barenaked Ladies from their album Snack Time, was playing while Michael was finishing up super. Everyone else was up stairs getting ready for bath time, so it was just me and Michael negotiating bites of chili for biscuits. As always with Michael, the conversation headed in an unexpected direction.
Michael: I have allergies.
Me: Do you?
Michael: Yeah I do
Me: What are they?
Michael: I am allergic to breath.
Me: To breath?
Me: Why do you say that?
Michael: Because Allergies are the same as allergic.
Me: Yes you are right….
Michael: So I have allergies to breath.
Me: Why do you think you are allergic to breath?
Michael: Because when Patrick breathes on me I feel allergic.
and then I said , “finish you supper” and ran down stairs so I could write it all down before I forgot it.
I love my son.
I love you Michael D.
If you do not own Snack Time, buy it. Even if you don’t have kids. It is a fun album. The kids, Tim and I love it. Kids music that doesn’t suck is the best!
