Life as Patty Scialfa

August 4th, 2004 · 1 Comment

Last week NPR’s Morning Edition was promoting their interview with singer Patty Scialfa. They aired the piece twice in one hour when I was listening on Wednesday. Not that I minded. It’s worth listening to the clip just to hear her describe what it was like to bring the youngest baby home from the hospital and realize I have three kids in diapers!.

I also liked learning about her life as Bruce Springsteen’s wife. How the two of them collaborate and how they relate as artists. For example, she quoted him advising the record will tell you when it is complete.

I must confess that I spent a portion of my life envying Patty Scialfa. I also envied Courtney Cox. Before she was a Friend. Back when she was the girl Bruce Springsteen pulled out of the crowd and up onto the stage to dance with him.

But this was years ago and before I met Ted. He may not be a rock star, but he looks cute in jeans and a T-shirt – especially his black Apache Software Foundation Member shirt (what he was wearing when I picked him up from OSCON on Friday). He’s creative and I hear he’s a bit famous too….

And to think that he pulled me out of the crowd and up onto the stage to dance with him in the dark…Wow….
