John wakes me up the other morning, after his workout, while I'm lingering in the dark, pretending I can sleep another hour - but I only have five more minutes.
"Baby, guess what!?" he says with utter glee. "Today is best day of all the days, since we have been together, can you guess what has happened?"
"Mmmm. It's snowing?" I slightly slur, with a sleepy voice.
"Nope, baby, it's not snowing. It's something that's never happened."
"Ummm, David Bowie has a new album out?"
"Yes! David Bowie has a new album out! Yes! Today is his birthday! 14 tracks! It's coming out in March!"
And while I'm delighted that his musical idol is releasing a new album - is it Bowie's 29th or 30th, I shall let you debate that with him - I'm even more delighted that even in my near-sleep, I can pick up on the unique energy of his voice, his posture, his psychic messages and learn stuff like this. Ah, mawwiage. This is one of the cool parts!
