Beauty, Splendor, and Other Crap

Holy Christ, it's so beautiful outside my work window. The colors of spring are so brilliant. The sky is bright blue, the trees are blooming in hues of cream and pink, and the grass is as green as, well, grass. I want to take off my shoes and go frolic in the beauty and splendor of the scenery. Well, frolic until I got a sliver or stubbed my toe. Then Mother Earth could kiss my ass. :)

Of course spring came a little earlier this week when we all found out that Know-It-All put in her two-week notice and is leaving next week! Woo hoo! I think I just saw a little chipmunk outside doing a dance.


Okay, the other day I heard my mom say something I never thought I'd hear her say. We were stopped at a stoplight and a guy pulled up beside us and had his windows down and his rap music blaring. I suppose I made a face that said something like Sheesh! Kids these days, eh? and my mom said, "You know, that kind of music has a lot of meaning to it. They say things in those songs! And who doesn't want to blast music they love? I know I do!"

Huh?

That's right, kids. My mom was defending rap music. Aren't people over 40 supposed to be afraid of it? I wish I could say at this point in the story that I got out my Kanye West or Eminem CD and blew her freakin' liberal ear drums out, but frankly, I was a little stunned. What has Larry King been discussing on his show lately, anyway!?

Your mom defending rap music??????
I'm very scared. I never heard her say anything about rap music!
