Some People

My son, who was busily schooling me on the art of meditation...

[learned where?]

...said,

...some people sit like this [cross legged] and some people sit like this [lotus] and some people hold their thumb & finger in a circle like this and some people...
On and on went the 'some people's, so I said,
Some people call me a space cowboy. Some call me the gangster of love. Some people call me Maurice.
My son rolled his eyes.

I blame Grandma Seattle for playing The Steve Miller Band so much when I was a child.

I loved that song growing up! And congratulations... the Mayor's education in public conduct seems to be coming right along. Public office could use a few like him!

I opened the blog post on my iphone. I could not see the album cover. I read your comments about some people and mused "why does that sound familiar?" - When I scrolled down and saw the end I laughed out loud. I am so glad we had such and educational impact on you. ;-) Have a great weekend. Love Grandma Seattle

I'm a picker, I'm a grinner, I'm a lover, and I'm a sinner. Great song!

How did the Mayor take it?

Great that your son is teaching you meditation.

That is a fine Steve Miller song. I kinda prefer Keep on Rockin.

Good to see you here again.

Thanks for posting this.

Yay, you're still posting!! :-) I am a loyal, if seldom-commenting reader who, having read and re-read "Chicken Breast Threat Level Orange" for several months now, chuckling uncontrollably every single time, I might add, is nonetheless delighted to find a new post from you. I know, I know...life takes over, and blog entropy sets in and all that. But this is *such* a great record of your family life -- you will never regret taking time to chronicle the good stuff. Yoga tutorials from the Mayor? Who knew :-)
