When I first heard Kenny Chesney's "Boys of Fall"...I'll admit, I kinda scoffed a little. See, I think there's something about good ol'd Kenny that is well, hawt, but he's just...well, he's short and skinny and bald.
I just couldn't see him as a football player. But then...I listened to the song a little harder, and I fell in love with it. It sort of makes me feel wistful and brings back warm fuzzy feelings of Homecoming and footballs games in high school.
Then, I had my teenager listen to it. His take, "I like the words." Typical teenager...uses as few words as possible! ;)
I have now become a mother of one of the "Boys of Fall"...and it makes me feel equal parts old and youthful. Old, because it's hard for me to grasp that my boy is a high schooler and turning into a man right before my very eyes, and youthful, 'cuz I remember those days. Those days when football games were the most important thing in the world.
So, Kenny...I take back my scoff...thanks for (yet another) awesome song that evokes strong emotion! ('Cuz, you know...I'm sure Kenny reads my blog.) ;)
PS...this week's TextEducation is about "Decoding your Teen's Text Lingo"...I dunno about you, but OMG, is one of the few text shorthands I know. I'm off to read more about this myself!
