Juicebox Hero

Yesterday, I went to pick up my 7 yr. old nephew Sabian to spend the night with me. We were in the car on our way to my place and I gave him my CD case and told him, "Look through there and choose a CD you think looks good and we'll listen to it." Well, of course being a 7 year old boy, he chooses the soundtrack to Spiderman 2. Of course he knows no songs on the CD, so I tell him to look for the other Spiderman CD. As he's flipping through them, he sees my Foreigner CD and says, "Hey! I have this one! It's Cold As Ice. Can we listen to this one?" Sure. We listen and sing along to Cold As Ice and Sabian even plays the air guitar for me. Quite entertaining. So then I ask him, "Wanna listen to my favorite song on this CD?" He says yes so I turn it to #8, Jukebox Hero. As we're singing along and he's learning the chorus, he does a fist pump in the air everytime it says "hero" Two fist pumps, "he-ro"...completely out of tune but oh so much fun.

When I drop him off today, I told him, "Tell your dad what song we both like." And Sabian says, "Juicebox Hero".

I love that kid.

That kid has good taste, Foreigner is good stuff. Rock on!


That's supposed to be the rock on sign. I'm not sure if it's working.

Kids say the cutest things. Good music choice, too.
