My Not So Lonely Boy

I was driving around town the other day when that song “Lonely Boy” came on. I like the song so I started to sing along. As I sang I realized that the lyrics to the song have to be some of the dumbest ever written. I mean, why was the boy so lonely? He had parents. He had a sister. What was his problem?

So I was talking about the song with Paul yesterday asking him, as an only child, why he thought the boy was so lonely. I sang the song to him since he wasn’t familiar with it and about half way through Paul said, “There’s your answer.”

“What do you mean?” I asked.

“He’s lonely because his parents taught him to fight, so now he’s alienated and doesn’t have any friends” he responded logically.

I love my kid.
