Those poor dragons

I just heard the song “Mother’s Little Helper” by the Rolling Stones. It reminded me of when I was a kid. Not because I was much of a Mother’s Little Helper (sorry Mom. I still suck at mopping the floor.) And not because anyone had a pill-popping problem. It’s because we used to listen to the Rolling Stones on cassette tape while cruising around in our station wagon, and my youngest brother Eric thought that the line “what a drag it is getting old” in the song was “when a dragon is getting old.” He was such a cute little kid. (Or wait, was it my brother Brandon who made up that line? Well, you were both cute.)

Eric, Chocolate and Chuck Norris

Here’s a picture of Eric eating something chocolaty. And note the Chuck Norris headband. Sweet.

    It was Eric…I wish I could take the credit for it.

    Yeah, Eric would ask us to put on the “dragon” song when we were in the station wagon. For the longest time, we couldn’t figure out what that was, and he was so frustrated with us. Then one day it was playing and he yelled out, “THE DRAGON SONG!” Ah-Ha! we said, but why? He sang along, and from then on, it WAS the dragon song.
