My ten year old son came home from a three day overnight camp. He cuddled up to me and insisted I watch a You Tube video concerning some sort of fox and dancing. He called it “super funny.”
My daughter had come home the day before and told me that this fox video has replaced Gangnam style.
When I asked her if this was a good thing…
I was greeted with a snort. A laugh. And a single sentence, “it’s awesome.”
Being that I had not seen my son in three days and this was his one request. And also feeling like maybe I should be “up” on what my children are watching on You Tube, I obliged him. Especially after last week, when my husband and two kids came home laughing after going to the video game store together. Apparently there had been a clueless mother there attempting to buy her seven year old child “Grand Theft Auto.” The cashier had to talk her out of it. I did not want to be “that” mom.
This is the video that is all the rage right now. “What does the fox say?”.
So I watched it. Um. Yes. That is all I have to say about it.
I really am getting old. I will agree it is quite catchy. I know this because the song has been in my head for three days.
My son just read what I wrote in that paragraph and this was his response:
“Mom. I don’t think you’re getting old. When I first saw it, I thought it was weird, too. But then I agreed that the music is good. Everything else is just…weird. I then looked up what a fox does say, because I was curious. It makes kind of a bark, but shorter. Well, actually, it makes over forty different sounds. I only know five of them. In the fall, it makes a mating call.”
He paused here.
“I don’t know what that sounds like,” he pondered.
Hmmmm. I don’t either.
However, I will conclude that that was well said, son. Well said.
I don’t think a fox could have said it any better.
