We had Viertel Christmas tonight with my mom, and it was pretty fun. As we were driving home with two tired kids who were excited about their first presents of the year, Annie started singing Santa Clause is coming to town, and doing a pretty good job on the words if not the melody. I wondered how she would handle “so be good for goodness sake!” It’s not terminology that we normally use.
Well, I had to smile when she confidently sang out “so you better be good for goodness sake!” I’ve heard that wording before, and when I realized where. She didn’t just belt it out like a boss.
She belted it out like The Boss!
