Here’s a Little Ditty.

Jack & DianeFor whatever reason, the word “ditty” fell out of my lips today when talking with the kids.  I immediately started singing “Jack & Diane”.

You should have seen the look they gave me. Crickets were chirping.

Seriously though. I have LOVED Jack & Diane ever since my ears first heard it. Who doesn’t love that song?! I’m going to start saying “ditty” whenever I can fit it in conversation. Then the person to whom I speaking will start singing “about Jack & Diane. Two ‘merican kids, tryin’ to do the best they can.” Then I’ll smile and my friend will smile and then we’ll have a moment and be even better friends. Then my friend and I will be happy and will smile at strangers who will then be happy and smile at more strangers and then the whole world would end up smiling.

Thank you John Mellencamp. You made the world smile.

    Ditty is DEFINITELY a spectacular word, and I ALWAYS think of Jack & Diane when I say it. Every single time. ❤

  2. I kid you not. Not kidding at all here.

    When I read the title, in my lame head, I immediately followed it up with: About Jack and Diaaaaane.

    I did.

    We’re related. I know we are.

    And for that reason, I feel for you.

    But I swear I sang it in my head and then you went and wrote about it.


Tell me. How does that make you feel?
