Mina schools me on music

We were listening to Squirrel Nut Zippers in the car today. The girls love them and laugh and make comments through all the songs.

Today Mina said, "Her voice sounds like muffins."

Leta, laughing, agreed, "Yeah, muffins!"

"It does not! Muffins don't HAVE a sound! How can her voice sound like a baked good?!" My ignorance is so embarrassing.

Mina explained, "Well it's kind of like cake..."

"What does CAKE sound like?!"

Mina sang "Laaaaa" in sort of a Louis Armstrong trumpety kind of way.

"OH... Right..."

"Cake is too big though, her voice sounds more like muffins." Of course. It's good that she's so patient with me.

This is perfect. Of course there's a difference between muffins and cakes. Sweet analogy, child.
