My Love For My Children: A Bruno Mars Comparison
Have you heard that Grenade song by Bruno Mars? (If not, I embedded it below.) Personally, I don’t think he’d catch a grenade for anybody. I also have a hard time believing that he can’t afford a moving company to haul that piano. This video/song just isn’t right. Now if you were talking about how I feel about my kids, then I would say this video is a little more accurate. Let’s go down the list. Would I catch a grenade for Noble? Yes. Yes, I would. I would also be very angry afterward.
Would I throw my hand on a blade for Alistair? I’m not quite sure how that scenario would ever come to fruition. FOR him? Would this mean that he somehow got into a knife fight with another 20 month old? I usually let knife fights play themselves out before I intervene. And even then, I don’t throw my hand on the blade; I go for a safer wrist grab. So I’ll say no. No to that.
Would I jump in front of a train for Noble or Alistair? Why? Would that stop a train from hitting them? I’m pretty sure we’re all goners in that scenario. But sure, I guess. If I needed to somehow jump in front of a train to buy a couple miliseconds of time so that they could jump off the track, then yeah, ok, I’ll do that. Kind of like the grenade scenario, I would be pretty ticked off afterward though.
Every so often, I feel compelled to validate the love for my children by invalidating somebody else’s love. In Bruno Mars’s case, I would replace the word “love” with “stalker’s psychotic obsession”

Side note: Watching the video, would I haul a piano tied to a rope, through traffic? No, I would not. ESPECIALLY if it was through gang territory. And even more especially if I was just gonna leave it in front of a train. That’s asinine. Give it Goodwill or something! Some of those places will even do pick up. Seriously.
