Last night on American Idol the last contestant to sing belted out “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay,” which is Dad’s song, played yesterday on his 7 month anniversary.
We had the episode taped on our DVR and just as the judges asked “Why did you pick that song?” to which she replied, “Because I wanted to appeal to an older audience.” Randy scoffed/laughed a bit “Are you calling us old?”
DO YOU WANT TO SAVE OR DELETE RECORDING?
I guess our DVR decided that was enough for us to see. Or as I’d like to believe, it was Dad playing a prank on us. Why? Well a few seconds later the poor girl fainted off the stage while Nigel yelled for a medic. I just now watched the clip and it’s hard not to wonder if Dad had a hand in that, too. I can hear him now, “An older audience–I’ll show you!” Plonk!
Whether he did or didn’t have his angel wings involved, it certainly made me think of him and for that I am grateful. I’m positive at least one wing was involved in that.
