A Funny Thing Has Been Happening Lately…

…and it all started a few days ago, when I brought home a certain new CD. I’d be sitting at the computer, writing away, when from the kitchen I’d hear Brian humming.

Brian: *♪♫ quiet humming ♪♫*

And I’d be all like…

“What in the world…?”

A few minutes later, I’d hear…

Brian: “♫♪…Ohhhhh ohhhhhh….♪♫”

And I’d be all like…

“Is he singing what I think he’s singing…?”


As if he were unknowingly trying to answer my question, he would then start singing a little bit louder…


Brian: “♪♪ I like the Remix, baby….Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…♪♪”

And I’d get all silly and giddy and be like…

“Tee hee! He’s TOTALLY singing New Kids on the Block right now…”

After a few minutes of belting out the chorus of the Kids’ latest single, Brian would inevitably realize what was coming out of his mouth, and, well, his reactions were sort of like…

Brian: “DAMMIT.”

And I’d stay sitting quietly in my little computer chair, like…

“…I wonder if he’ll stop now?”


Adorably, wonderfully, after a few minutes of silence it would start all over again.


Brian: *♪♫ quiet humming ♪♫*

I just can’t help it. Hearing him sing New Kids songs makes me kinda…well…

Stupid Happy.


Addendum
: When I finally pointed out to Brian that he’d been singing Remix all the live long day, he looked at me with a totally straight face and said, “What? It’s a catchy tune.” I may have swooned. Just a little.
