Saving my breath

I have teenage daughters. So I could probably just leave it at that, and everyone could draw their own conclusions.

I have decided, in my infinite maternal wisdom, that I will just let Meatloaf (the singer-not the main course) give my children life lessons.
Premarital sex? Listen to Paradise by the Dashboard Light. (I would certainly be praying for the end of time. That's all I'm saying.)
Not sure whether to say "I Love You" first? Give You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth a listen.
Young, teenage, and hormonal? Pretty much All Revved Up with No Place to Go.
Scared shitless of the "L" word? Two Out of Three Ain't Bad.
And in my top three...when you have to draw the Love Lines...I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That).
And yes, the answer to your unasked question is I downloaded Bat Out Of Hell off iTunes and am currently torturing my children with it.
I remember listening to Meatloaf on 8-track.
Yeah. You read that right. 8-track.
Good times, my friend. Good times.
