I mentioned my Instant Coffee Committment song to my mom on the phone recently, and she wanted to see it, so I e-mailed it to her. She sent this in reply:
Let me expresso my delight in reading your soon to be hit single. Its
robust flavor and enticing aroma is sure to perk the interest of all who indulge.
Make no beans about it. Good to the last drop!

Your mom sounds neat.

Now you just need to add the notes to your song :)

Takes two to tango

Hmmm... If I had to pick, I would have attributed your sense of humor -- at least, the vein that shows through in the song -- more to your father. In fact, I can hear the paragraph from your mom's e-mail said in his voice without much effort at all.

As might be expected, they've both had an influence on my sense of humor.

The "underlying story with emotional impact" and "long setup -- punchline" patterns are more like my father's style. The puns, wordplay, multi-layered irony, and quick-changes are more my mother's style. They're both Zen, in their own ways.

Wow, I really like that poem. You have a magical way with words. And your mom is a riot!
