Art Imitates Life

Andi was doing some drawing tonight. I kind of taught her how to draw people since up to now her drawings have been mostly scribbles. She picked up on it pretty quick, and was drawing people like crazy. She drew this picture below, and gave quite the descriptive explanation of what is going on in it.

1. These two beautiful ladies are Aubrey and Sam. What are they doing? They're out spending money, of course.

2. The two handsome gentlemen depicted here are Jared and Cam. Andi said that they are playing with daddy's rocket ship. Jared broke daddy's rocket ship. But that's ok because . . .

3. This is Jared and Cam playing with a new rocket ship that Sam and Aubrey got when they were out spending money.

The other blurbs I think are failed attempts of drawing someone.

On a totally unrelated subject, Sam and I were listening to some songs on our computer while the kids were in here drawing and being obnoxious. Were we listening to Top 40 music, country music, or anything normal? Of course not. Our play list went as follows:

Growing Pains Theme
Perfect Strangers Theme
Full House
Who's the Boss?
Gummi Bears
G.I. Joe
My Little Pony
Mr. Rogers
Silver Spoons
Three's Company
Step By Step
Tail Spin
Duck Tales
Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers
Happy Days
Greatest American Hero

How cool are we? Not very? Dang. Yeah, back when Napster was still going we spent a night or two downloading theme songs. It comes in handy some nights when you just want to sit around and be nostalgic and dorky.

I think if there's ever a TV theme song that will far outlive the show it was tied to, it will be the theme to Greatest American Hero. How many people remember the TV show? Compare that to the number of people that remember the theme song. Plus the theme song was immortalized by an answering machine message that George Costanza made in a Seinfeld episode. If you need some help remembering the lyrics, here's the chorus:

"Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me."

Hey, maybe I watch too much TV.
