Weather: Fundah! Wightening!
By Linda Waggener
It’s a stormy night with rumbles of thunder and flashes of lightning. I'm remembering being serenaded by three young men in the back seat, singing the Bugs Bunny song to the top of their lungs in the little blue bug which ran perfectly - occasionally - that we called the Omnicoot.
The song bears down scarily on the words thunder and lightening, only in Bugs speak, and the boys sang it perfectly, it was “Fundah!!! Wightening!!!”
Christopher Rowe, Pen and Tom Waggener where the singers. They were in the 10 to 14 year age range, that sweet time when an adult can enjoy such goodness from children who still need them ... to drive.
When pre-drivers can just taste the freedom that will be theirs in a few years or months, they are all about how sweetly they can negotiate with parents needed to take them places. It's a fine season of young folks talking kindly to adults and even serenading adults at times.
I remember feeling like their chauffeur, like if I said to them, but I’ve been given only a few days to live, they’d light up and their response would be, “oh good, you have time to take us to Walmart!“
