So, my magical playlist of Classic Rock songs that the girls should know comes on the blue-toothified radio. While we are tooling down the freeway at 65mph. (I know! 65! In LA! A great day indeed.)
“Wake Up, Little Susie.” Everly Brothers.
Me: Oh, Girls, this is a Great song. You need to know this song.
Isabella (she’s 7): Is this a Great song, or just a Good song?
Me: Well, Honey. I don’t know that I need to hear this song everyday, but it is a very important song.
Iz: But, is it a Great song, or an Important song?
Me: Honey, you are splitting hairs.
Iz: I don’t know what that means. I’m 7.
Me: Sometimes a Great song is an Important song. And, sometimes an Important song is a Great song.
Iz: Then, is this a Great song or an Important song?
Me: Sweetie, without this song, we would have no Lennon-McCartney, Simon-Garfunkle, Bowie-Mercury. Or whenever any two people sing together.
Iz: So, it’s an Important song.
Me: Yes, and it’s Great!
Iz: Wait, go back.
