On Van Halen and bathtubs…

June 26, 2009

Remember that song from Van Halen called “Right Now?” I’ve always liked the music video for this song. In particular, I’ve often thought about the line that flashes on screen at around the 3 minute 46 second mark. It reads, “Right now, you’re not doing what you most wish you were.” Usually when I see the video and that line in particular, unfortunately I have to concur. From time to time when in a work meeting or stuck in traffic or the waiting room of a doctor’s office, I’ve thought about that line and its truth. Unfortunately, those times seem to be too frequent.

But not last night. And not the night before that and not the night before that. Because last night and the nights preceding it, I gave Meghan a bath, and though our tub desperately needs resealing as the paint is slowly chipping off, and though the bathroom decor needs serious updating, and though the light is just a little too dim in there, I couldn’t think of any other place I’d rather be or anything else I’d rather be doing. And thankfully these moments are becoming more and more frequent.
