Much to my delight, little kid has joined ukulele club. I don't know if I'm more delighted that there is such a thing or that he wanted to do it, but I am delighted.
"How was the first day?" I asked when he got home.
"It was so great. I love it. I can already play some notes and I learned the Put the Lime in the Coconut song!"
"That is so exciting!! I will buy you your own ukulele so you don't have to use theirs. Maybe I should buy myself one too! We could be a mom/boy band!"
He was looking at me and smiling, trying to be polite while determining if I was joking or not.
(I really do want my own ukulele and it only makes sense that we would perform together...)
"I could dance too! Look, something like this," I mimed my ukulele playing dance as he watched patiently. "What do you think?" I asked, doing my best to look hopeful and excited as he looked concerned.
"Let's hold off on the dancing right now."
"So we're a yes? I agree we need to polish up the choreography before we go live."
"Yeah...well, let's first get me a ukulele and see how that goes and maybe you can get one for Christmas or something."
So it looks like we'll be ready to tour 2016.
