The Husband just read my blog and will now helpfully assist me in the making of his surprise mixtape. Ok, who told him I had a blog?
As soon as he saw I was considering (I was only considering) Mariah Carey’s cover of “I’ll Be There,” he let me in on a little-known but scientifically proven fact: A person’s favorite version of any given song will be the one they first heard. For example, if you heard the Beach Boys version of “California Girls” first, that’s the one you love and you have no use for the David Lee Roth version. He says this is “not set in stone” but he was very animated. Gesturing, even. Don’t trespass on his Michael Jackson, okay? Just don’t. He didn’t say any cuss words, but he thought them.
