08:37 am: Would You Go With Me?
A friend sent me the following note:

This video might be worth a Kleenex or two when you have a minute:

 For us girls whose husbands take them on flights of fantasy...


Well, I immediately fell in love with this -- the video, the song, the artist, everything about it. Not exactly sure why. Partially because I was touched by the note above, partially because of the wonderful, bittersweet video, partially because of the words, partially because of the wonderful deep burr the guy gets in his voice, partially because I was just moderating a scene with a guy exploring holding a lantern like that (and I decided the character should look like the singer, ;-) partially because, well, sometimes we just don't know why we love something. We just do.

I've watched/listened to it fifteen kabillion times now. I've shown it to Juss a few times, too. He sits on my lap and watches it. Last night, Orville came in to see it as well, and I explained the end very briefly. Then, Juss gave his own explanation, which was: 

"Now they have to live their lives all over again."

He kind of didn't get the point...but his version was cute. We also had the following conversation:

Juss: "What's that man doing in the house?"
Mommy: "He's not there at the same time as the boy and girl."
Juss: "I mean the music player."
Mommy: "That's the singer. His name is Josh Turner."
Juss, gaping in utter astonishment: "How do you know his name?"

It was interesting to read the comments on YouTube. Teen girls moaning that he was totally hot just weren't getting the point. Okay, he is, but for me a big part of that was the reassuring, knowing smile as he was singing those sweet words.

My first reaction rather amused me. It was something like..."Oh, that's why I like Russell Crowe so much. He has that same deep burr type of voice."

But I agree with you, there's a kind of a 'come join in the joy of it' charm.
