Who Knew?

So, we are Drivin' 55, (well, actually 70) and I finally found something decent to listen to on the the drive up. It was a country station and I knew Mom would approve of country.

Mom is a little hard of hearing. Well, maybe a lot...but I had the volume up to a low medium volume. The only reason I recognized the song playing on the radio was because I recently caught a little of the CMA awards. Kid Rock's new song, All Summer Long begins to play on the radio. Surprisingly, I like this song. Secretly, I am wondering what my Mother will say. I am certain she will ask me to change it or not hear it at all. The conversation goes like this...

Mom: Is that Rid Rock?

Me: Yes, it is.

Mom: He stands for everything I hate. Long hair. Drugs. Alcohol. Sun glasses all the time. He's even been married many times. He's disgusting.

Me: Yeah...(trying to sound like I slightly agree with her)

Mom: But there is something about him...(long pause and then a smile on her face) that intrigues me....and I like him! I think he's sexy!

Me: Mom, (a little shocked that my 75 year old Mother has the hots for Kid Rock) ...he's that dangerous kind of guy. The bad boy...and you like that!

Mom: Yes, I guess I do. I like Kid Rock.

Me: Well, you go girl!

As the song ended, I wondered if I knew my mother at all. My mom has the hots for Kid Rock! What will tomorrow bring??

Until then....

Now, that IS funny. And know what? I like Kid Rock, too. I think he's actually a nice guy.

That says it all about how we really NEVER fully know anyone even though we think we do! That is awesome! Tell your mom "she rocks" ;)

Mom's can surprise you sometimes. I am surprised that your Mom knows who Kid Rock is. I know mine doesn't.

That is too funny....I had a deaf mother also....Claimed she couldn't hear a thing...but everytime I would talk to her on the phone, if I was eating something, like pretzels, she would always say..."what's that crinkling noise in the background"....sure, she couldn't hear....I meant to tell you that I wrote a post on my blog about the North vs. the South, thought you would get a kick out of it. I still can't link but it's in my November posts...Culture Wars....
