We were chatting about the upcoming Summer Olympics today at lunch.
We LOVE watching them, especially the opening ceremonies.
We love seeing the different countries represented, their people, their flags,
and, of course, the countries represented in our home.
We were talking about the medals, and how the gold medalist gets their national anthem played.
Charlie asked what our national anthem is.
I told him it is the Star Spangled Banner.
He didn't know the song. It's not like we sing it often.
Perhaps if a certain cucumber and tomato sang it, he may know it.
So in my most awesome singing voice, ahem, I sang...
"Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?"
Amarin piped up with disbelief..."At the toilet's last cleaning?"
Laughter prevailed. Explaining was necessary.
Second languages are so much fun!
