Song of the Day (Extended Version)

The BG and I have a routine on schoolday mornings. At 6:52, I come into her room and wake her up with the Song of the Day. She asks for “one more minute” and I use that time—after taking her order—to prepare her breakfast, which usually consists of cereal (Honey Nut Cheerios, Raisin Bran, Lucky Charms or Cookie Crisp) and either vegetarian bacon (VB) or vegetarian sausage (V Saw). When the microwave dings, the BG comes happily down the stairs, and while she eats her breakfast, we check the weather, watch “Dunkof the Night” on ESPN and, if there was a Wizards game the night before, discuss the usually predictable outcome.

I was so pleased with this morning’s SOTD that I thought I’d record it to give you a flavor of the procedure. I also found a version of the original on Soul Train, so those of you not familiar with the oeuvre of Mr. Kurtis Blow, might want to check that our first, in order to check the accuracy of rhyme and meter.
