Dueling Precocities

VodkaPundit tries to start something:

After strapping the boy into his car seat, I got in myself and checked to see if the next song on the iPod was inappropriate. “Son, would you like to hear a really good song?”


“It’s Earth, Wind & Fire, and it’s really funky.”

Pressed play and watched his face as “Shining Star” started to play way too loud.

Preston sat, listened, judged, pronounced: “It’s not funky enough.”

Last night, I offered to sing “You Are My Sunshine” (first verse only) to our two-year-old, and he declined. He wanted to hear the “Hi, Hi, Hi” song.

“I don’t know that song,” I said.

“‘Minne the Moocher’,” he said clearly.

Top that, Martini Boy.
