Unusual Sunday School

Samu likes to mindlessly sing a line from a song all - day - long. Whether it's from a movie, a Super Mario game or an insipid pop tune the camp counselors were playing on the bus ride, he'll sing it like a broken record....yeah, remember those?

The past week, Samu was singing something about "starships" and how they were "meant to fly." It's only when Zuki joined in with his out-of-tune monotone droning, that I realized this must've been a tune Samu picked up from camp.

I had to Google it because I know shit about pop music. If you're savvy, then you already know that the tune he was grinding our nerves with is "Starships" by Nicki Minaj. Actually, I like Samu's version better.

It's his little boy voice. I told him he should join a choir and showed him a YouTube video of the Belfast Boys' Choir. He didn't care much for the singing but he was highly interested in the close up of the Communion rites.

"Why are they eating - are they hungry?" then, "How come only old people get to eat?" and finally, "What are those - crackers?"

 So I explained, "That's supposed to symbolize bread, the Body of Christ" and expected him to be thoroughly confused but he just laughed like he got it.

"Oh so, Jesus is made out of bread!"

Well, if he were made of chocolate - like Santa and the Easter Bunny - then I bet we'd have a lot more Catholics in the world.

And now, the moment you've been waiting for...Samu sings "Starships" with a dance number by Zuki.

    1. A future - thanks for the encouragement! I should see if Clown School has financial assistance.

  2. LOL! There is never a dull moment in your house!

    I need to get with the program on the latest pop songs too...I just find them all so, well. Boring. Today's music? Let's face it, it's nothing as cool as the '80's.

    1. When one is surrounded by awesomeness - it doesn't phase one. Or it could be he's just annoyed with Chippendale's.

  5. If the host were made out of chocolate I'd still be Catholic. Not really - maybe if you got the whole chalice of wine though.

    1. But, of course. I'd be Catholic, too if they served better mandatory snacks!

    1. It is - in Staten Island. That's as feasible as auditioning for the Harlem Boys Choir.

  7. Sooo much more entertaining than ho-bag Nicki Minaj, and your boys are approximately 10000x more talented too.
    And Lily is ridiculously jealous that we get crackers in church and she doesn't.

    1. Y'know - I've never understood that whole crackers and wine thing. All I want to know is - is it REAL wine?

  8. "Jesus is made out of bread"....I love that line! One day they'll understand, one day.
