“Is this Rick Springfield,” I said, whispering mid kiss, not sure if the smile on my face was from the music or what her hands were doing to me. It was funny, hearing a song that I’d heard my dad sing a million times, when he shaved, hummed when he drove. He loved that song more than anything. I couldn’t shake the thought of that dumb look on his face when he heard this song.
