My daughter was home from school sick today, and was taking a nap next to me on the couch while I was working. Towards the end of naptime, I turned to see that she was sleeping with her eyes slightly open, which was kinda creepy.
As a result, I started humming “Enter Sandman” a little later when she had woken up and I was making her lunch.
"What’s that song called, Daddy?"
"It’s called ‘Enter Sandman’ sweetie."
"That sounds like a good song!" she says.
"Would you like to hear the real song?" I ask.
She nods, and I pull it up on Spotify and play it. She’s rockin’ in her chair a little bit as it goes through the intro and into the verse. When it gets to the prechorus, I start lipsynching, complete with air guitar.
"SLEEP WITH ONE EYE OPEN! CLUTCHING YOUR PILLOW TIGHT! EEEEEXIT LIGHT! ENTER NIGHHHHT! TAAAAKE MY HAAAAND…"
I look at her after performing the Chorus and she’s looking at me like “wtf is wrong with you?”
"Turn it Off! Turn if Off!" she says.
I do, of course. “What’s the matter? Don’t like Metallica, honey?”
"No. It’s BOOORING!"
