Last weekend my dad and his wife came down for a visit. Here are a couple of the conversations that had me saying, WTH. Some of the best laughter I've had this year...
Conversation 1: While watching a tribute to Michael Jackson...
Dad's Wife: Who is Jamal?
Me, Hubs, & Sis: Huh?
Dad's Wife: He is always referring to somebody named Jamal in his songs and I wonder who this Jamal guy is.
Me: Do you mean when he says, "Shamon'?"
Sis: Yeah, you me "Shamon." It's like he is saying, "come on."
Conversation 2: While watching a tribute to Michael Jackson (The Way You Make Me Feel video)...
Dad: Oh, isn't that Tavoy right there on the end?
Me, Hubs, & Sis: Tavoy?
Dad: Yeah! Look!
Me: You mean Latoya???
Dad: Oh yeah whatever...
Conversation 3: Talking about the Blogalicious 2009 Conference
Sis: India Arie even made a quick appearance at The Blogrollers' party.
Dad: Who's India Arie?
Everyone except Dad: OMG!!!!
Conversation 4: In car listening to India Arie...
Dad: I don't know if I like her?
Me: What do you mean? Why not?
Dad: Well, when we were watching her on TV it sounded like she was doing those...you know...drug chants.
Me: Drug chants? What the heck is a drug chant?
Dad: You know...like that rap stuff.
Me: OMG!!! Drug chants? Where did you even get that from? And India Arie is not a rap artist.
Dad: Was she the one with the short hair or the one with the big hair (referring to Jill Scott)?
Me: She was the one with the short hair, but Jill Scott was the other one and she's not a rap artist either.
Dad: Well she sounded like she was doing drug chants.
Me: Sigh. Shaking my head.
Hubs: So why are you calling it drug chanting?
Dad: Because all those rap guys do drugs.
Everyone except Dad: Big SIGH...laughter
I mean did he really say, "bareback on a mule?" What century was this man born in?
