Sometimes it is the simplest moments that bring the greatest joy. My second son and I jammed out to Aloe Blacc’s, “The Man,” on the way to basketball practice last night.
On the way home I thought about how technology allowed our moment to be so cool. First, my son and I jam out all the time. But last night just highlighted what an awesome time we are living in.
My son asked me if I had heard the new Aloe Blacc song. I asked which one and he said, “the I’m the man song.” I said I hadn’t heard the whole song, but knew of the song because of the Kevin Garnett Beats commercial. Now, this is when technology kicked in to foster a great father and son moment.
Our minivan has Bluetooth for our phones. So, quickly we looked up the song on Grooveshark website. Switched the radio to broadcast my phone and soon we were bobbing our heads while we sang, “Go ahead tell everybody. I’m the man. I’m the man. I’m the man.”
You might be thinking, there is nothing special about the technology. That is true. In fact my son and I may have jammed out to another song. But ten years ago, this wouldn’t have happened. We take for granted what technology does for us everyday. How awesome it is right now… I think Neil Pasricha would agree with me.
Have an awesome day!
