I came across the following video on youtube (is a choir from Ireland, I believe) and got the song "Over My Head, I Hear Music in the Air" stuck in my head. It's one we sing in my church sometimes (not nearly often enough!) I love it, it really does fill me with joy to sing it. Out loud. Some of the people in my building give me really strange looks when I walk around singing or humming...I mentioned that to a friend once and he said ignore them, obviously they don't have music in their souls. Excellent advice!
I couldn't remember all the real words, so just made up my own, singing about what makes me hear music in the air and fills me with joy. I flipped an email to Valerie, because I knew she would recognize the song...I'll share our email exchange because it kind of cracked me up:
[Me] PS - our friendship makes me sing "Over my head...I hear music in the air...there must be a God somewhere" ♥
[Valerie] there definately is... dido
[Me] dido? should I know what that means?
[Valerie] It means that I echo those same sentiments with regards to our friendship
[Me] Ahhh...I get it now. Was pronouncing it in my head as "Dye-doh". (Who was a woman from Greek mythology...also a singer that Sara listens to...) Just the way you wrote the whole phrase, I thought maybe it was also an obscure reference to God's existence or something! Funny.
[Valerie] okay, that is too funny :)
My dear friend is a woman of many talents...spelling, however, is definitely not one of them! :) Of course, I realize it's blindingly obvious now that she meant "ditto", but in my defence she is a minister, after all, and references to God actually are part of her everyday language...that's my excuse anyway!
