Prince or Princess?

I'm taking my son home from tutoring, and I have the radio on.  Prince's "Kiss" is playing. It doesn't take my son long to declare he hates it.  I ask him why:

"I just don't like all the squeaking.  It's disturbing," he says. "Why is it on the pop station?"

I say pop means popular music.

"Mom HOW can this be popular!"

"She sounds terrible," he adds.

I tell him that  it's not a "she" singing.  He says  "that makes it even MORE disturbing."

It's official.....I'm old!

Hey, Edie,
It's me, your Really Old cousin. Aunt Viv told me that you had a blog, so I Googled you... and lo and behold, here you are! Just thought I'd drop in to say hello and see how you're doing. Sounds like things are okay for you and your family for the moment(believe me, we're always grateful for those moments). I wish I could get away some time to see you. It's really been forever.
I am a newbie blogger on blogspot.
Drop by and see me sometime.

Love you,
the ancient one (Pam)
