As Told By Ginger

Lindsay reports that she "just happened into the TV room where my kids are watching a cartoon called As Told By Ginger. She goes on to say:

"It has a couple of funny characters in it that are her little brother Carl and his precocious but still kind of dopey friend 'Hoodsie' (because he always wears a hooded sweatshirt). (Okay, okay, so I spend too much time watching these shows ... don't even get me started on the genius of Sponge Bob Square Pants ...) Anyway, I came in on the middle of this exchange:

Hoodsie: ... you don't know what you've got til it's gone.

Carl: We're trying to write a song, not a love letter!

Hoodsie: It's from a song, Carl, a really good song. The kind that makes kids cry."
