Why is my blog called Crazy Normal? (otherwise titled: Ben Rector is a genius and so is my daughter,
Once upon a time I decided (again) I really needed to blog. A little later my daughter attended a concert by Ben Rector. After the concert, she came home and played me a bunch of his songs. Here's what happened.
So, yeah, it's that simple. There I was in the midst of designing my blog and was hung up on what I should title it. My sixteen-year-old went to a Ben Rector concert (don't worry, she has GREAT taste in music). Here's the photo from her Instagram on the night of the concert:
And she came home more in love with his music than she was prior to going to see him live (hard to imagine, but it's true). And she played me several of his songs. And here are the lyrics to Ben's song "Crazy" which I have now claimed as the new anthem for my life (and title of my blog!):
You ever get tired of turning on the radio And asking yourself "Who lives that kind of life? Cause I don't" I need an anthem, I need a song that I can sing So raise your glass if your life is crazy Crazy normal Last night was crazy, yeah we tore it up again Kicked off our shoes and went to bed by 9pm We were balling and Netflix We turned it up to ten Last night was crazy I threw my hands up in the air At that detective show we watch You drank red wine and I had Britta on the rocks We made some pasta with our favorite kind of sauce Last night was crazy, yeah One, two, yeah we're living fast and free Here on our favorite street So raise a glass with me, oh You know we're going hard And that we're living large Right here in our back yard, oh This life is crazy This life is crazy We got off work and met at Bed, Bath and Beyond You looked at curtains, I bought a birthday card for mom We wanted tacos, but the taco truck was gone Last night was crazy, yeah Then Saturday, slept til 8: 30 And felt so reenergized My car was dirty so I washed it in the drive We've got dinner reservation with our friends later tonight And it might get crazy We probably won't get crazy Unless you guys want appetizers (apps for everyone) We're living fast and free Here on our favorite street So raise a glass with me, oh You know we're going hard And that we're living large Right here in our backyard, oh This life is crazy This life is crazy I don't know where all these party people at You've gotta have a job and get some sleep, you do the math And someone's gotta pay for all those bottle service tabs And that sounds crazy And if you're living fast and free Here on your favorite street Then raise your glass with me, oh And if you're going hard If this is living large, and you know who you are Yeah, we're living fast and free Here on our favorite street So raise your glass with me, oh You know we're going hard And that we're living large Right here in our backyard, oh This life is crazy This life is crazy This life is crazy This life is crazy
