Ceiling Can Holders
Published on Thursday, July 18, 2013 by

Sing it with me!  Don’t be shy!  Just like my daughter and I did on the way to the beach house last month.  In goes the Macklemore CD…. We begin to butt dance and belt out the following:

Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight ’til it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can holders…..

…. And that is when I paused the cd to ask, “Hey honey?  What is a ceiling can holder?”

SILENCE.

TOTAL SILENCE.

“WHAT?!  Mom?!  WHAT??!!  CEILING CAN HOLDER!??!?!  It is LIKE-THE-CEILING-CAN’T-HOLD-US!  ARE YOU SERIOUS!??”

I swear to you.  I thought it was “ceiling can holders.”  I really really did.

    Ceiling can holders…. makes perfect sense to me. I’d go for a ride in the car any day with you, Katherine! My motto is, if you can’t sing well, sing louder!

    Well, I will never know if I’m right or wrong on the lyrics because I’m too lazy to look them up online. But I did have a friend who thought ‘Rock the Casbah’ was ‘Fu*k the Cashbar’

    Bwhahahahahahahaha! Katherine, that KILLED ME!!!!

    And where did you find that photo of the cat and cans on the ceiling? BRILLIANT!

    Yes, I’ve done the same things with certain songs. The song by Alicia Key’s “This Girl Is On Fire.” I thought she was saying, “My FACE is on fire!”

      Ha ha Ron… I MADE THAT PICTURE! I created my very own ceiling can holders, with a kitty looking on! If I were to imagine ceiling can holders, that is what they would be. :)

      Mom always thought Steve Perry was singing, “One more pizza pie” in “Who’s Crying Now.” (I think it was the One love feeds the fire line?)

      So one day can you and I put on that Macklemore video, get under our ceiling can holders and dance like no one’s watching?!?!?
