Rickrolled by my baby

So YouTube is busy cel­e­brat­ing April 1st by Rick­rolling all the Fea­tured Videos on their front page.  How fun, I thought, I haven’t seen Rick Ast­ley since, well, the Eight­ies.  So, at break­fast, I vis­it­ed YouTube and clicked on a video about a mon­key.  Sure enough, there was Rick, singing in his too-deep tones with ran­dom dancers doing ran­dom Eight­ies moves.  I shut the win­dow and start­ed surf­ing anoth­er site when I heard the dul­cet tones of my own lit­tle song­bird.  He (the two-year-old) point­ed at the lap­top and said, “Again!”  And then, when it was done, “Again!”  And, “Again!”  We watched the video a total of five times this morn­ing, and now I can’t get the song out of my head.  I do believe I have been Rick­rolled, by my baby.
