The C Spot

We carry on the traditions of our parents and create new ones when we become parents. This is especially so at times of celebration such as Christmas and more recently Shrove Tuesday.

Mrs Domestic Goddess Inc and I created a new tradition. It revolved around a particular part of the now defunct Chris Evans drive time show, on a Friday Night. Each Friday he played a Sammy Davis Jr track called 'The Candyman'. For those unfamiliar to it's charms, it is a joyful track with fantastical and uplifting images, such as "who can take a rainbow, wrap it in a sigh. Soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie."

Our 'tradition' involved dancing around holding Little Dude in a group hug formation and singing the lyrics at the top of our voices, well Little Dude just blabbers nonsense at the moment. This was a great way to set up the end of a working week and the beginning of the weekend. However, Chris Evans moved on, and although he still has the C Spot on a Friday morning, I have already left for work.

That has not stopped us though, using Spotify, we can now listen to The Candyman whenever we want and The C Spot has become a much more regular tradition than just Friday nights.

Brighten up your day, have a listen to The Candyman and see if it hits your C Spot.
