Family by choice is the best kind of family as far as I’m concerned. Last Friday, we were at our friends Cait and Dave’s place to celebrate the third birthday of their son Nate. Nate’s father Dave is also a Leo. His birthday was yesterday. Happy Birthday to ya.
Cait is a zealous REM fan. I think she knows more about them than any of the members. She was playing some live REM stuff and one of the band’s biggest hits, Losing My Religion, became lodged in my consciousness where it remains. Btw, the song isn’t about Jesus, Buddha, Moses, or any of those Holy Joes. It’s a common phrase in the South. Here’s the top definition at the Urban Dictionary:
Southern term for losing one’s temper, “flying off the handle”, etc. Note that the R.E.M. song of this title has nothing to do with religion, despite the common misinterpretation of the phrase.“I was close losing my religion with the kid wrecked the BMW.”
