MissEight: Mom?

Me: Ya?

MissEight: I took my iPod to school yesterday so I could --

Me: (frowning) Oh no no no no no. You know you can't do that.

MissEight: I know I know. I just had to play everyone my favorite three songs. I won't do it again. Can I play them for you?

Me: OK.

MissEight: (smiling) I'm going to play them 3-2-1, and 1 is my most favorite but I really really like them all. No. I am going to add 4 too.

Me: Go for it.

MissEight: OK. Number 4 is "A-Punk." (ed. Vampire Weekend) This used to be my favorite Number 1.

Number 3 is the Dandy Warhols. I love singing this. (ed. "Plan A")

Number 2 is Deerhunter. (ed. "Coronado") Does the guy know you made that video for this?

Me: Well, I don't know! I know the guy who played sax on it liked it.

MissEight: That's cool. It's a nice video.

Me: Thanks, punkin.

MissEight: And Number 1! When are we going to do this one, just you and me? I can play the drums. (ed. The Beatles, "Help")

Me: (smiling) Soon, I hope. That would be fun.
