I usually try to dissect the curious events of our day for their meaning, deep or otherwise. But I just got nothin’ for you on this one.
The J-Man’s Preschool Class of Autistic Wonderment joined the older grades from the ‘regular’ classrooms for a school assembly of sorts where some cover band (who I assume cater to the elementary school crowd) did a cappella versions of familiar songs. Note, though, that this is the kind of a cappella group where many of the singers are acting as the instruments, which can be both loud and rather sensory-overloading.
Anyway, they did covers of Rihanna (I’m so uncool that I had to look up how to spell her name) and the Jonas Brothers (no comments on the strange irony of this from those of you with inside knowledge) to what I’m sure were the grating squeals of dozens of little girls, along with a bunch of other songs. The older kids sang along, but for nearly all the songs, the J-Man had his head buried in his teacher’s lap – a.k.a. the ostrich defense.
But for one, he perked right up and started having a great fun time. I really tried to find a way to cleverly lead into this, but to no avail. Just listen and see.
Like I said, I just got nothin’ for ya here.
