As we were driving back from her guitar class one afternoon this week, Fade to Black came up in the Westy and she started strummed the air. I told her that I used to play that song with my 16 yo boyfriend… (him on his electric guitar, me on my classical one…). Because, you know, sometimes you have to throw stuff like that in a conversation with your kids, so they realize, you have not always been a mom... and even worst, that you rocked!
She smiled and said with twinkling eyes:
-Really? That's so coooool! That means you could teach it to me!
Oh... I wish I remembered how to play, baby girl… I’d love to show you some Metallica or Iron Maiden from my past life!
