I downloaded “Eye of the Tiger” for the Shorties from iTunes recently at Pickles’ request. It came on when the four of us were in the car tonight and the following conversation resulted:
Sweet Pea: Isn’t this song from Rocky?
Me: Yes. I can’t remember which one, though. There were a few.
Sweet Pea: That movie was about boxing, right?
Pumpkin Pie (interrupting and emphatic): No! It was about street fighting!
Me (rising horror in my voice): What?! What are you talking about?! Do you even know what street fighting is?
Pumpkin Pie: Yes. (Proceeds to give a description of street fighting.)
Me: Where did you even hear about that?
Pumpkin Pie: Sweet Pea.
Sweet Pea (Who has NO IDEA what a street fight is even though he is 12): I DID NOT!!!
I just turned the volume up on Eye of the Tiger and kept on driving…
