More stories from the "Kids of the 80s Grow Up" files:

I was in the kitchen, spreading peanut butter on apple slices for the kids. O. was sitting at the kitchen table and working on a math workbook and figured out something that had been puzzling him and I said, "oh, that was tricky, wasn't it?" Randomly, because I am a giant dork, I followed that with, "it's tricky to rock a rhyme; to rock a rhyme that's right on time, it's tricky!"1

From the hallway, where A was sitting on the stairs while her dad was putting on her shoes, I heard M's voice chime in with, "It's tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky."

1986 represent! We did NOT carry on with "I met this little girlie; her hair was kinda curly" but I feel confident that we both could have. I can't remember the last time I heard that song and yet it will never leave my mind. And yet I can't remember to bring home the gallon of orange juice that I bought at lunch on Tuesday and that has been sitting in the office refrigerator ever since.


1 This should NOT be taken as evidence that I am turning into one of those old people who will randomly blurt or sing out snippets of song lyrics that nobody else remembers and that are only very tangentially related to the context at hand. This was a one-off. Seriously, total fluke. *hides*

Although it seems like iTunes has the entire Captain and Tennille catalog, there do not have "Butterscotch Castle" from that 1976 classic album Song of Joy. My inner five-year-old is pouty, because that was a favorite song at that age. I have previouly confessed in this space a fondness for "Afternoon Delight" - clearly, there was a lot of horrible AM radio going on in our household in the mid to late 70s.

Lyrics behind the cut, you lucky bastards, and if anybody has an mp3 of this lost gem, OMG hook a girl up! Hurry on down to our butterscotch castle! Limited time only! )

Vibrations! Flowing in a positive way! To properly appreciate this song, I think you must be:

(a) five
(b) stoned
(c) hungry
(d) a collector of Precious Moments
(e) all of the above.
