The Song Police

My Noah is so funny. For those of you that don’t know him, he really likes things to be “just so” and if they stray too far from his ideals, it drives him crazy! (I have no idea who he got that from….) He is usually pretty serious about most things, and to him it’s all black and white with not much room for any gray areas. One time while we were driving home from Mammy and Pappy’s Haven was singing “Baa Baa Black Sheep, except in her own version that went “Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full. One for the Master, one for the Dame, and one for the little boy that lives down the land“.
   I don’t know if she heard it wrong, or thought the word really was “land” but I didn’t think it was a big deal and let her sing her little heart out, whatever the words. Noah however, had all he could take of Haven's mistaken lyrics, and turned to her and said in a very loud voice “No no no Haven, it’s not “land”, it’s “LAME”! So Haven duly changed the ending , and ever since then, the little boy lives down the “lame”. So remember, when you decide to correct someone when they are making a mistake, make sure you tell them “it’s LAME”!
