Well, when I was done I called him from the parking lot of Stop & Shop only to have the call go to his voice mail. Twice. I was annoyed and preceded to drive home. I tried to ease my frustration by listening to the music I had playing in the car. I enjoyed the song: Justin Timberlake – What Goes Around.
“You’re awake? I called you twice but it went straight to your voice mail.”
“You called? My phone didn’t ring.”
“I need you to help me with the bags.”
So he promptly came downstairs and brought the rest of the groceries from the trunk of the car into the house. Now when I listen to music sometimes the song sort of gets stuck in my head. I’m not sure if this ever happens to you but the melody and lyrics will continue to play even though the music isn’t playing in my environment around me, this was happening to me that morning with Justin Timberlake, while we were putting the groceries away in the kitchen.
My son was putting some items away in the refrigerator when he began to sing, “What comes around goes back around, I thought I told ya, hey, … great mom, now you have that song stuck in my head.”
I was shocked and confused. “What?!” I knew it had been playing in the car and it was already stuck in my head but how did he know? He wasn’t with me in the car. I hadn’t been singing it aloud. It was just on loop in my head.
“Justin Timberlake. You have that song stuck in my head,” he explained.
“How did I do that?”
“You were singing it when you came in the house,” he paused. “Weren’t you?”
“No. I didn’t say anything when I came in. I thought you and your sister were sleeping.”
“I was playing video games upstairs. You weren’t singing it, when you came in the house? You sure?”
“I was singing it – in my head.”
“YES! Get out of my head, Enrique!”
We both laughed. But it was true. Apparently my son and I are connected more than I realized.
