This one’s for the family, my mother’s side of the clan.
Somehow, and I don’t know how, Billy Joel’s Piano Man has become the family anthem. I think it started with my one cousin and his friends and he transported it to the other cousins and now it’s a thing and it doesn’t really matter where it came from anymore.
At every party (from various 21st’s to weddings to New Years Eve to random piss ups) the cousins (and any friends who are around and know how it goes) will throw their arms around each other and rock from side to side, singing the lyrics at the top of our lungs.
It’s a beautiful moment every time.
Here’s to you guys, our random mix of cousins and sort-of-cousins. Love you all.
