Your insufferably Cute Athena Moment For the Day

Work, work, work for me today, so no long screeds about writing or marriage or politics or whatever. Instead I’ll pass along a cute moment between me and Athena, when we were in the car and I was playing one of my CDs. Athena, who does enjoy her music, piped up and made a new request, which was “Wouldn’t it Be Nice” by the Beach Boys.

“I didn’t think you liked that song,” I said to her.

“I do,” she said. “The part that goes ‘wouldn’t it be nice to live together’ is so beautiful and sad that it breaks my heart.”

Brian Wilson should be as proud as I am.

See y’all later.
