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.
