I have a former student named Stan*. Iโ€™ve been sharing his commentary on Facebook for 3 years. Folks think heโ€™s funny. ๐Ÿ™„ In honor of his recent graduation, Iโ€™m going to start positing the stories here. Hereโ€™s our very first interaction, 3 years ago. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ
Stan: Ms. Buddington, you like your hair like that?

Me: Yes...why?

Stan: *walks around me, looking at my head*

Me: *confused*

(Exhibit A: ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ 2016 Hair)
Stan: *goes into his notebook, scrawls something, rips a paper out and hands it to me, with a number on it*

Me: What is this?

*still confused*

I spent the day listening to #ArethaFranklin and getting emotional more often than I expected.

I have always loved Aretha Franklin. I even loved the eras that other fans would've preferred to pretend did not exist.

In tribute here are my favorite

"Don't trouble the water..."

My mom used to sing this song to me whenever I was upset as a child, which was often. Elvis performed her favorite version.

I loved the original, but for me it's Aretha rendition and it's incredible vocal arrangement .


#Aretha was an instrument of the gods.

When she sang it looked both effortless and all consuming.

Like Tina, when Aretha covered a song the original often receded from your consciousness.

"Spanish Harlem" is Aretha's song.
