A few weeks back, I was driving 7yo to his gymnastics class and “One Kiss” by Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa came on the radio. If you’re not familiar with it, the lyrics of the song go like this:
One kiss is all it takes to fall in love with me – the possibilities.
I wasn’t really paying attention to the music, but my thoughts were interrupted by 7yo halfway through the song:
7yo: Wait! This song doesn’t make any sense!
Me: No? In what way?
7yo: Well, you don’t kiss someone until you love them, so why would they be kissing in the first place?
Me (smiling): That’s a very good point, buddy.
7yo: I mean, are these people at a party somewhere and they trip and fall face first into each other and when their lips smash into each other they accidentally fall in love? That doesn’t make any sense. I don’t think that’s how it works.
Me: You’re right, buddy. This song doesn’t make any sense.
Ah, if only life were so simple.
