Happy clouds, or She has her priorities straight

Location: The park on the way home from school.

Me (singing): . . . I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee . . .
Four-year-old (laughing): You have clouds in your coffee?
Me: Not me, the woman in the song. It means she’s sad.
The two children draw blank looks.
Me: Do you like it when it’s sunny outside? Does it make you happy?
7-year-old: It depends how sunny. Not when it’s really sunny.
Me: Well, in the United States, where the singer lives, they don’t have as many sunny days as we do, and it’s not as hot. So they are happy when it’s sunny, but clouds make them sad. Here we have lots of hot sunny days, so we are happy when it gets cloudy and rains.
7yo: Especially this year, when we need rain so much.
4yo: Clouds make me happy.

  13. I have that song in my head now. Over the weekend, it was “koom v’hithalech ba’aretz”, because of Lion of Zion’s post on the parsha.

    My friend had a story about her sabars’ lack of pop culture knowledge. She made a reference to a UFO, they had no idea. Flying saucer, nope! She flew a dish around the room, blank stares, LOL!
