Parents are like kids sometimes. I only see my Mom three or four times a year and it’s never a dull moment around her. She often comes out with things that should be filed under “Parents say the darnedest things.”
While driving to New Jersey last week to attend my grandfathers funeral, my Mom had the radio up and she was going to town singing. The conversation went like this.
“*words I can’t make out* Stupid Face” – Mom
“What?” – Me
“What What” – Mom
“What are you saying?” – Me
“I’m singing that new Nicki Minaj song.” – Mom
“Which one?” – Me
“You know, Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, he got that stupid face.” – Mom
“Mom? She says Super Bass.” – Me
“I saw her on Ellen. She says Stupid Face!” – Mom
We get to the Funeral and while we are waiting, I am looking up the lyrics tothe song and asking all my young cousins the lyrics. I knew I wasn’t wrong but I needed back up. She still swears Nicki Minaj changed the lyrics when she sang it on Ellen because that’s where she heard the “Stupid Face” lyrics. Way to confuse my poor Mom by using the wrong lyrics Nicki!
