9 Years, 6 Months, 2 Weeks & 5 Days into Daddyhood

I sometimes find myself thinking (overthinking) about the meaning and practicalities of things that are sung about. For example, in this song that my daughter has been listening to/singing quite a bit recently…


Bruno Mars: Count on Me

… there is a lyric that goes like…

“If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea,
I’ll sail the world to find you.”

– which is all very lovely, but would you really? I mean, it wouldn’t be very practical, would it, to actually get in a boat and start sailing? Call the appropriate emergency service(s), yes, and assist them all you could, but actually “sailing the world” just doesn’t make sense.

As I said, overthinking… 😳
