A few months back I purchased my first iPhone. To say I was excited was an understatement.
I immediately started downloading apps. Mr. Yoy figured out that if I downloaded the Spotify app (a music streaming program) we could use it to play music through the blue tooth audio in the big red bus.
This was going to be amazing for our trip down to Florida. And it was.
Right around the time we returned from Florida, my brother and sister in law came to visit and took Big E to see Chipwrecked. Big E loved it.
A few Saturdays back we were running some errands and Mr. Yoy pulled up the soundtrack to Chipwrecked through Spotify.
And that's when I ceased enjoying my minivan.
Every car ride now begins with Big E's demands of Alvin & the Two Chipmunks. I don't want you to think that I let him control me, but it's hard to concentrate on driving with him in the back screaming.
I WANT ALVIN!
I WANT THE MUFFINS! (translates to the Muppets)
We don't have a DVD player, so I have to do something before I drive us off the road into the nearest river.
The only saving grace is that those pesky rodents cover the Go-Go's on their latest (meaning they have more than one we can listen to) album. And lord knows I freaking LOVE the Go-Go's. I'm sure Belinda Carlisle is rolling over in her coke induced coma.
So, as a compromise we listen to Vacation over and over and over again.
But it gets worse. When I shut off the car today, the music transferred to my iPhone speaker. Big E's eyes widened in amazement. He now realized he could listen to Alvin wherever he was.
Tonight it was in the bathtub.
Please, oh please, make this just a passing phase.
Or else I'm going to need a V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!
