Lifelong Learning

Exhibit A:
Delium: It was like that episode of Scooby Doo. Where Scooby… Wait a minute. Scooby. Scooby DOO.
Me: What about him?
Delium: The name. It’s referring to scatting. His name is a reference to scatting.
Me: You just got that?
Delium: I just got that!

Exhibit B:
Nordic Boy: You are such a good whistler. How do you do that? Right on key and everything!
Me: It’s a gift.
Nordic Boy: Whistle something.
Me: (whistling ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.”)
Nordic Boy: Really? Of every song in the world, you’re whistling the ABC song?
Me: No, that was Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Nordic Boy: Yes, which is also the tune to the ABC song.
Me: DUDE. I have never noticed that!!

We take lifelong learning very seriously around here.


  1. I knew the ABC/Twinkle connection because of one of my daughter's toys plays different musical tunes and didn't come with any list of the songs, so I was guessing what they were as they were playing and realized that tune will work for either one. But the Scooby Doo is a new one for me, thanks!
