got it goin' on like donkey kong. (i wish...)

I like to think that I'm a pretty cool mom.

Note that I like to think that. I really have no clue what my sons think. As far as they're concerned, I might very well be the woman who buys them ice cream bars, yet lifts the box over my head and am all "Not until you do your math homework and complete 30 minutes of reading, bwahahahaha...."

(...and then maybe eats the contents of said ice cream bar box and pretends like I have no idea what they're talking about when they come crying to me for a fake frozen dairy treat coated in waxy chocolate goodness. Whatever, dude. Glass houses.)

Anyway, back to what a cool mom I think I am. I don't have to ask anymore about why Zack and Cody are living in a hotel (sidebar - that really would be a suite life!). I've figured out the difference when Miley is Hannah and vice versa. I say things like "Dat's jus' how we roll," and "It's all good in the 'hood!". I'll make time to play with action figures.

I'll also willingly listen to Crazy Frog butcher Queen's We Are The Champions. OK, maybe not willingly, but it's part of being a cool mom. You listen to the music that those around you find enjoyable. That's what I did when I was stuck in a car for seven hours with my own, cool in her own right Mom this week as we trekked back from the great state of Missouri (kisses, Missouri! do you miss me? No?? Huh. Well...fickle bastard...). My mom likes the country music. I've no beef with country music. I once owned a pair of cowboy boots (they were kick ass black leather with embroidered hearts and swirls on them and I would give a million dollars to have them TODAY! Because I'm cool!). I also dated a humble man with deep country roots, so yeah, you could say I got a little country western in me.

Here's what I forgot about my mom. She likes to sing along with her music. I'm not sure why I forgot this, since it's something I routinely do, too. When Paradise By The Dashboard Lights comes on my iPod, I'll bust out both Meat Loaf's and Ellen Foley's parts for the entire 8 minutes and 27 seconds (you better believe I'm doing it RIGHT NOW). Hell, when Paradise City, or (I've Been To Paradise But) I've Never Been To Me come on, I'm giving everything I have to the music, whether I'm scrubbing toilets or touring in the mini.

(But not Almost Paradise, because I just can't feel the love, Mike Love and Ann Wilson. Sorry.)

So back to the trip home. We're probably hour four into our seven hour tour when Honkeytonk Badonkadonk came on the radio. Mom heard this tribute to curvy posteriors, and she cranked that radio up and unleashed what I imagine rivals those American Idol audition episodes.

(I say I imagine because I may very well be one of the few people on Earth who has never watched a single episode of American Idol, and while that might mean I'm not actually cool, I beg to differ, because how cool am I for at least knowing of AI?!).

I shouldn't be hating on my Mom's vocal abilities, but the woman is bad! So, so, scary bad. She's making up words and she's all over the range. Hell, halfway through, she's singing an entirely differnt song. Most of the time, that is Bob Seger's Old Time Rock and Roll. It is ugly, people.

(and I'm sorry, too, Bob Seger, because dear Lord, I hate that song.)

And then it hit me. If she's cool, yet bad, then I AM, too! Oh, it might be fun to pretend I'm preserving my virtue when Meat Loaf is getting all sweaty on me in the back of the car, but it's never as good to those who must listen to me as I think it sounds performed before a live studio audience. This point was really driven home for me when I looked back at my sons, trapped in the backseat while their grandma was questioning how the female protagonist of said Trace Adkins song was, and I quote, "gettin' them britches on." Their faces were frozen in fear and shock, and those faces spelled out "This is NOT cool!"

And one day, I am going to go from action figure playing, ghetto talkin', Disney Channel viewing Cool Mom to Lame Ass (nay - Badonkadonk!) Mom in one fell swoop, and I predict all it's going to take is one overzealous performance of another tribute to juicy bubbles.

(Which I'm singing along to RIGHT NOW, so let the transformation begin...).

P.S. While I'm shocked Blogger's spell check option doesn't recognize 'Google' as a word, the fact that "Badonkadonk" isn't in the internal dictionary doesn't surprise me in the least. Disappoints me, yes, but shocks me? No. And what the hell? It DOES recognize "Crazy Frog"! Lame.

Have you seen the video for "Honkytonk Badonkadonk?" Don't watch it with your boys in the room.

I love the song...the catchiness of it. My kids would d.i.e. if I sang it out loud, however.

I think I'm a cool mom, too. Actually, more than one of my kids' friends has said so. I'm thinkin' my kids are paying them to butter me up.

Well you know what child number 1 of 2 thinks of me as mom. I am only cool if there is food around. But singing, ah yes singing. I could win every AI title there is. I am a talented tone aware, perfect pitch, I can sing it better than that chick top performing mom. In my own head. Jim now has the kids asking me "Mom, who sings this song?". I used to reply with not only the group, but the individuals names, and stats. In return I get "well then why dont we let them sing it".
D'OH! I now respond, "well I do you lovely charming sweet hearted children that adore my talents".

Um. Okay. At the risk of losing the love of my blogger soulmate, I have a confession to make (honesty is the most important element of a relationship, right?).

I watched the last two episodes of season two of AI, rooting my heart out for my Raleigh boy Clay Aiken. C'mon, don't look at me like that. He's a sweetheart who loves his Southern mother. And I am a lifelong fag hag.

My teenaged stepson still thinks I'm cool because I took him to get Manic Panic in his hair before his job as best man at our wedding. And he lives in England and only sees me twice a year.

Some day, Diff Girl, we'll duet "Paradise By the Dashboard Lights." And I like you so much I'll give you first dibs on the parts.

The trick is to make it clear to your children that if they want the flow of cold, hard cash to continue, they will at least lie and tell you how cool they think you are. I admit this does get easier as they mature and realize that money can be exchanged for things they just HAVE to have.

Bee - FIRST!!!!!!!!!!

Bee - Since you were the first to come out and confess you've not seen AI, either, you can be my vice president of whatever club that puts us in. It appears we have a few members below us! Fight the power!

Claire - I think the neighbor kids who come around here think I'm cool. Of course, most of them just look at me like I'm talking Chinese when I speak to them, so I just have to take that thought on face value!

Chas - Welcome to the Anti AI Club! As I was sitting outside writing this post the other night, I could hear someone singing a rap song - as an opera. Then this huge, burley dude walking a little dog went walking by my backyard. It made me cast a 'Huh. That's interesting,' that I'd probably have if I ran into your sister at Walmart!

William - If only I'd been able to capture their mugs on camera! Thanks!

Alice - No matter where we go, if hear a song I know, I am singing. Cars. Restaurants. I'm probably really annoying. My oldest son sighs and asks, "You know this one, too?!"

Melody - I only watched a couple seasons of Survivor, one of The Bachelor and no Big Brother. I just can't commit that much time to television if Mike Rowe isn't hosting or walking around shirtless!

Always Home - For the briefest moment, I thought you were calling me a "once a whiner, now a winner" and I was gonna propose an old school throw down! Then my mind was cleared up when I saw your true intent! Thanks!

Melody - Very glad to be back!

Melissa - I think you're right. No matter how fast they can get their eyes rolling, I still think the kids dig it!

Cocotte - Another AI avoider! Woo hoo! Lately my kids wonder why I've been singing about kissing a girl and liking it and boots with the fur. Wait until I'm over 60 and still doing that to them!

Laura - Oh, I know my mom butchered some Duran Duran in the day. Also, when she kept referring to my beloved INXS as "INKS," I had to school her before she forever ruined "Need You Tonight" for me!

ftn - It disappoints me that you've never talked badonkadonks with me. It's just BOOBS! this and BOOBS! that and BOOBS! what have you. Huh. Guess that shows where I rank.

Eh, who am I kidding? It's so about the BOOBS!

Bogart - I like to think I'm a raginginly huge star. Thanks!

Des - I can not, nor ever will like that song. I endured so many mornings of hearing my mom sing that, horrifically, that it just cemented my already deep disdain for it. I just can't waiver on this!

Therese - Seriously, as I was writing this, I thought, 'I bet Therese only knows one or two of these songs...' I'm sorry that the one you know is the one I hate so much!

Phyllis - Heh! My little country phase was before Steve, and well, yeah, that wasn't such a little phase...

Summer - Here's where I'll confess that I have that song on my iPod, but with more than 6,000 songs on the thing, it rarely comes up for play!

Twobusy - I know, right?! (ignore that confession I just made above...)

Mandy - I always laugh after surviving scary things, so I got a good laugh out of this experience!

David - Daily? Aww, that's very kind of you! Most people around here just roll their eyes at me!

Choppzs - Honey, never underestimate the coolness of a mom who is armed with snacks!

WWoW - If spiders looked like baked potatoes, first I'd wonder what kind of chaotic world we've created, but then I'd be really, really happy!

Sailor - I still wonder about the coolness ratio of my own parents from time to time! I did think my Dad was like hella cool. Like more cool than he is today. Probably has to do with the fact that he'd give me money randomly when I was a teenager, and not so much now!

April - OMG! I specifically DIDN'T mention Drake and Josh, because no matter how many times I've asked my boys (i.e. - EVERY EPISODE!!!), I have no clue whose parent is whose, and who that girl belongs to. I can, however, reenact that entire salsa contest episode verbatum for I've seen in TWO MILLION times. Also, I can follow that with the Blues Brothers/school talent contest episode. Just don't quiz me on the family connections!

Anonymous - Sorry for leading you down the path of lame culture! However, you should have spent a bulk of that time staring all googly eyed at Joe Jonas. He's the hotter Jonas brother.

iMommy - Thanks for taking the time to read and comment! I'd traded in my sensible car for a minivan within hours of giving birth to my second child. While I hope to avoid plastic-covered furniture, I just think some things inevitably put a kink in our coolness armour!

Lori - I'm one of those people who can tell you title, artist, band members, year of their last hit, etc. It annoys my kids, yet I believe they secretly love it, for they're always asking. They don't so much ask me to sing, though, so huh. Don't know what's up with that!

That Girl - I can forgive you your AI indiscretion, for I can understand the power of rooting for the hometown hero. If you've stayed away since then, even better!

After reading your comment, I actually sat here and had a mental struggle - would I want the Meatloaf part or the Ellen Foley part. I used to rock both at slumber parties!

kimmy - I think our moms just can't help but be captivated by old school Bob Seeger and his night moose. Dude's like a rock. Let's be totally uncool together!

NAN!!!!! -- NANNNNNN!!!! Get thee back here more often! The world is a far less creepy place knowing you're around! I admire your ability to stay so strong and internet free. You, my sweets, are an inspiration!!

Michael - Ha! The flaw in that otherwise great plan is my overall lack of disposable income to hand out to the kids as (bribes) incentives!

Always Home - Ah, smooooooooooooooooth jazz. Sweet! Yeah, you are totally screwed!

Chag - I detest that song more than any Hannah Montana song. I swear. Thanks for standing up and fighting against it with me!

TZ - I'm forever singing along in the car, so I've foiled that option as a tool to get my sons to behave, unfortunately. Must start plotting new options! Thanks for reading and for your comment!

Loudly. It took me longer than it should to remember the fancy 'f' words in there. I try harder now!

iMommy - Before you even realize it, you're going to be driving around in a mini. It's standard issue! Thanks for rising to the challenge!

Lori - Ha! I like to imagine that one day, there will really be a secret message lurking in the word verification, and unlocking it will bestow me all the world's bounty! Should you get it first, please share!

Meg - Oh, hell yes! Most nights when I leave work, if it's nice, the iPod gets plugged in, the windows get put down, and it's a full on assault! I also do it when I clean the house. I've found delivery men at the door some days when I've been singing loudly for no one (or so I thought...)

Des - Apparently, I just like to appear naked in front of the neighborhood kids. By accident. Then I don't so much sing, as scream. When I scream, I think sometimes I might sound like Bob Seger.

But I get up Saturday morning and start readin' my local paper, and there's this big article all about Trace Adkins, who apparently was performing at the local music festival Saturday night. And, I mean, two-thirds of the article was about his 'butt song'. . .

Oh girls, sorry to join the party but I haven't ever watched AI either! Maybe we should start our own club or somethin!

I loathe that show and unless they start calling it American Strip Show and have LL Cool J headlining, never will I ever watch

Des - Trace Adkins will probably end up with the word 'badonkadonk' chisled on his gravestone!

lil sass - Welcome to the party! I might tune in for the type of show you suggested, but it would have to be on just one night a week. I'm not sure I can commit to three nights a week of any one show! Thanks for coming by and commenting!

TOO funny! Go granny!

I know that look of shock - my children give it to me when that "keep bleeding in love" song comes on..right before they vomit out the window and pass out from embarrassment.

'that girl' - My son has started to give it to me in public now. We were out somewhere the other day and Barracuda came on the overhead, so I was singing quietly along. He was insistent that that song is only a Guitar Hero song, and was both shocked and dismayed that it was both a 'real' song, and I refused to not sing along!
