All that being said, I do have a couple of funny little tidbits to share with you.
Remember a few weeks ago I chose the "Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars as one of my Saturday Soundtracks? I mentioned that the song did have a one lyric that was a bit cheeky and in my opinion kind of ruined the song for me. Last night I was driving in the car with Youngest and a couple of her friends. The radio was on and that song came on and the girls all started singing it. (Really- the song is quite catchy and you can't help but want to sing along...) Well, I temporarily forgot about that one part and remembered just as it was coming up and reacted by singing over the lyrics...."lalalalalalalal." However, the girls surprised me and said, "Don't worry we have are own lyrics for that part."
"Oh, and what that might be?"
"We say...."(instead of "have some really nice sex") "Send a really nice text."
It reminded me of the times when in college and we would be in bars and the Billy Idol version of the song, "Mony, Mony" would come on and we would change the lyrics. Remember the part where folks would shout out "Get L#%$ Get F%^&*#!" ? Well- my nerdy friends and I would chant at that part- "Get a job, Go to Church!"
Next up, a friend and I were discussing a mutual acquaintance who is probably the most unique thinking individual we both know. This person is very single minded in her quest to create a world solely dedicated to her wants and desires. Her way is always the right way and she is unabashedly not afraid to exhibit hypocritical opinions.
Case in point, this person is hyper-critical of other folks parenting styles. She's extremely over protective of her kids and I've witnessed her over the top behavior on more than one occasion. Which is why this particular bit is so hysterical and such a dichotomy. This is how it went down...Her son was planning a sleepover with my other friend's son. At the last minute plans had to be changed and she asked if her son could just come over to their house to have a play date instead. "Sure come on over," my friend invited. When they arrived, this gal hands a bag to my friend's husband and says- "Here, I brought this for the kids to play with."
He looks inside and sees an assortment of fireworks. (I might mention at this point that the sale of fireworks is illegal in our state. However, you can drive right over the border and buy them. We live on the state border.) Friend's husband says, "Oh- thanks, but I don't think this is such a good idea."
Gal says- "Why? I only bought fireworks that were age appropriate."
Is that like saying, "Here, go play with these matches kids, they are more age appropriate than this lighter." Or, "hey, go play with daddy's guns, but don't touch the ones that aren't age appropriate." Or maybe, "Go ahead and play in the street kids as long as you wear that reflective vest."
I know I'm being a bit on the sarcastic side, but I can't help it. The idea that there is such an idea of 'age appropriate fireworks struck our funny bone. We couldn't stop laughing.
Do you have any funny song lyrics stories? Or any age appropriate stories to share? Would love to hear them all!
