My daughter is going to like Plato's thoughts on music's effects on the soul......

File this one under 'astute observer'. My daughter Biki is a smart one and she's constantly trying to figure out why we do things differently then the culture at large. Well, I don't really want to live in a hole and try to engage the culture where we can without letting the crapola in. Let's just say sometimes my flirtations with popular culture don't go very well.

I like to listen to the radio and I was thumbing through the stations at a light yesterday and came upon a song with a catchy beat and let it stop. Turns out it was Beynoce's "All the Single Ladies" which I knew from the refrain..."If you like it you better put a ring on it...woah, woah, woah, woah, woah." (That's for you older readers! : ) Anyway I start to sing along and mentally make a note that there's nothing bad with these lyrics. Then I hear Biki from the back of the minivan.

"This music sounds like the girls aren't wearing appropriate clothes."
"Hmmm, you are probably right Bik. Let's turn it off."

And so we did...and there probably won't be any more Beyonce in the car either! Even if it is a catchy song.

That is the best Biki story. Oh my. If it makes you feel better the entire sonofNiff family has admittedly sang along and danced in the car to that song (though we say , you shoulda put some oil in it...that's random but it was a reference to Mistress Mouse from Richard Scary...somehow we mixed the 2.)
