Taylor Swift’s new album came out a few weeks ago. October 22nd, my 28th birthday, to be exact. And since then, a copy has been on repeat in the CD player in my car.
I’ve been listening to ‘Red’ a lot, and therefore, so have the kids that I nanny for. Mr 4 is a bit of a new Taylor Swift fan, and after a fair amount of time spent in my car, has learnt the words to quite a few songs, and even has a few favourites.
Yesterday I decided it was time to give the bonus tracks a little bit of airtime, so I switched the CD in the car. And it didn’t take Mr 4 long to figure out that I’d changed the CD.
This morning he asked me if I could put “his” song on – Track 9, Stay Stay Stay (also refered to as “the Wah-Wah” song). I explained that it was on the other CD, and that I couldn’t change it while I drove. He contemplated that for a while, and said, “Okay, when we get there then you can change it”, and I agreed.
But I didn’t change it. And so after we were finished ‘there’, we got back in the car, and started driving home. And then he realised something.
Mr 4 – “Hey, this song [Treacherous] is on the other CD too.”
Me – “Yeah it is.”
Mr 4 “How come?”
Me – “Because it’s a different version.”
Mr 4 – “Oh, a different birgin (sic)… where is the different birgin of the Wah-Wah song? They haven’t made it yet right?”
Me – “Err… that’s right.”
Mr 4 – “You have to tell her to make it, right? You have to ring her up, today or tomorrow, and tell her to make the different birgin of the wah-wah song.”
Me – “Umm… something like that.”
This kid cracks me up. He thinks that I can just ring up Taylor Swift, today or tomorrow, and ask her to record a different birgin of “Stay Stay Stay”. Funny one kid.
