Son of a Preacher Man

Dear Priscilla,

I thought of you in yoga class this morning.  In the early class I attend the instructor plays the most fabulous playlists and since I recently realized that “my brain is 70% song lyrics” I frequently choose my yoga classes based on how well I like an instructors playlist.  I go to the 8:15 class a lot.

Today I heard “Son of a Preacher Man”.  I have no idea why that song reminds me of you dear Priscilla, but it is your ring tone on my phone and has been since I figured out how to customize ringtones.  Remember that time you called when I was in church?  How apropos, especially considering you are the religious one.

I’m pretty sure I connect you to the song because of one line: “Bein’ good isn’t always easy, no matter how hard I try.”  There is something about both you and me in that line.  We do try, and sometimes we succeed. Sometimes we fail miserably, but we always have each others back when one of us crumbles.  We take walks, we tell each other everything is all right, and we’re always learnin’ from each other.

But, that’s pretty much all I have in trying to figure out why that song reminds me of you.  Especially since you don’t like boys.
