After pizza, I took out our date night activity I had prepared, 2013 Grammy Award Predictions. Now, some people are content just calling out their predictions just before some celebrity duo rip open an envelope after painfully delivering a series of bad jokes. Not us. We make predictions in all EIGHTY-ONE categories. That's right. Now, you might be wondering how we are qualified to make predictions in all 81 categories. Well, Holly is a stay at home mom, isn't she? She surely doesn't just sit their and Bon-Bons with Anderson and Carter all day. Nope. She Goes through all the songs, albums, etc. to become INFORMED. Carter and Anderson too. It's culture city over here.
Of course I am being sarcastic. Holly and I rarely listen to music nowadays besides what percolates into our car through the radio. And, of course, we are stuck with the same tunes we loved in college, which turns us into those older folks. But you don't need to be a music junkie to make predictions.
