Is This Normal?

The scene: A family gathering at my parents' house to celebrate my father's birthday.

My 67-year-old mother sits at her grand piano in her opulently decorated living room. She begins to play a tune, somewhat haltingly, and it is:

Bohemian Rhapsody.

Soon afterwards, as in living rooms all over this great land of ours, my sister and I are belting out, "I see a little sil-hou-etto of a man...Scaramouche! Scaramouche!..."

Will you do the Fandango?
