Who is The Who?

January 28, 2019

Hola Bitcholas,

As a parent, there are all manner of small, magical moments you get to enjoy with your kids. Some, you have to manufacture, like taking them to Disney or some comparable bullsh*t. Other times it's a moment when your kid discovers (and appreciates) something YOU enjoy.

Case-in-point, my daughter was watching the "Angry Birds" movie...which is absolute garbage...and one of the songs used is "Behind Blue Eyes" by The Who. Anyway, she tells me, "Daddy, this is my new favorite song!"  While I'm sure this is fleeting, it was still cool at the time because it wasn't Taylor Swift or that "My Heart is Havana" song that she insists on playing.  

Ah, so there I was, heart swollen with pride (and, probably, years of poor diet choices) and I explained that "Behind Blue Eyes" is an ACTUAL song that I happen to own on vinyl and would love to share with her some time.  

When I told her the band name, we entered the uncharted territory of an unplanned "Abbot and Costello" routine.  

I keep trying to explain that the NAME of the band is the Who. My daughter took this as me questioning her about the band's name. This lasted considerably longer than I was prepared for and by the time it was all over, I'm not sure she ever got the name of the band. It was a long process that yielded few results.  

But, well, she likes a good song.

Until tomorrow, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!

While you're loitering, stay long enough to grab your #BourbonandBaconFest tickets now!
