Last night I was driving Number 3 and 4 to swim practice, and the three of us were doing the same things we usually do.
I was preoccupied with a million thoughts in my head.
Number 4 was singing at the top of her lungs.
Number 3 was staring out the window trying to tolerate Number 4’s singing, which drives him insane.
The song True Love, by Pink came on the radio.
Number 4 was singing away, and then she suddenly stopped.
“Mommy?!?! What???This song makes no sense!” she yelled.
I’ve heard that song a million times, but I’ve never actually listened to the words.
I snapped out of my haze, and listened to the lyrics.
At the same time, I wanna hug you
I wanna wrap my hands around your neck
You’re an asshole (that word was bleeped out) but I love you
And you make me so mad I ask myself
Why I’m still here, or where could I go
You’re the only love I’ve ever known
But I hate you, I really hate you,
So much, I think it must be
True love, true love
It must be true love…
“See Mom? I really hate you, SO IT’S TRUE LOVE???
WHY DOES SHE SAY THAT???”
All I could do was laugh.
“Give it time, Number 4.
One day you’ll get married.
And then you’ll have your answer.”
Help me stay Number 1!
