I'm a Loser

The other night, my brother sent me a message on Facebook encouraging me to check his blog. He thought I would rather enjoy that days post. The topic of the day was music, and knowing my passion for music and being in the music industry, he would rather remind me to read the blog than me forget to check in on it. So, off to his blog I went.

I enjoyed the post. I chuckled at it (chuckle in an amused manner, not the funny ha, ha type). I again found it both thought provoking and well written. Definenately a post I could relate to. Its topic - pick an artist/band and provide answers to the questions using one song from that band/artist. And, you must do so by not repeating any of the songs. After reading the blog, I had two thoughts. First, gotta read to Janda as she may enjoy it. Second, I might have to do this at some point in time.

First thought of sharing with Janda was accomplished. I shared the half of the post with the Steve Taylor songs. I love Steve Taylor's music and the genius behind the sattire of the words. Janda isn't too appreciative, but shared with her none the less. When I was done reading the post to her, Ethan put his two cents in and boy did it cause me to think.

Being tired, on his way to bed and still bummed from his baseball teams loss, what he said was perfect. His words were minced in my head and I thought he was referring to the state of the teams loss. Nope! Below is the conversation.

Me: (reading from brothers blog to Janda) "My Motto" - Jesus is for Losers
Janda: "Okay"
M: "I like this and thought it was funny."
Ethan: (walking into room after giving us nigh nights) "I'm a LOSER!"
M: "Ethan, you're not a loser..."
E: "What? Isn't Jesus for me?"
M: " got me. And yes, you are right, Jesus is for you."
J: "Got you." (said as she laughs).

Lesson learned. Man, this boy is teaching me a lot over the last month. I love it and I am very proud of his maturation. Thanks kiddo.
