My Reality. Checked.

One of my most favorite things in the whole world, is music. I love all kinds, always have. I also love to take a long drive on a nice spring/fall day with my windows down and my music blaring. Since having the kiddos, blaring music is not much of an option. Not to mention the fact that I like my music explicit. Spare me the dumbed down, clean version and the radio edits. If Kanye West is ranting about drunk and hot girls, I want to hear it, in it's true form.

I was actually able to get out this week without the young and impressionable Munchkin. I plugged in my Ipod, and cranked up the volume. I was cruising through some of my feel good music. John Mayer, Colby Calliat, Coldplay and then some of my newest downloads started. As I'm sitting at a traffic light, in my hood', I'm belting out with Mr. Kanye West. The song was Gold Digger, and lyrics go like this:

It take to much to touch her

From what I heard she got a baby by Busta

My best friend say she used to fuck with Usher

I don't care what none of ya'll say I still love her

Now I ain't sayin' she a gold digger,

but she ain't messin with no broke niggas

So, back to the traffic light..... I'm singing, feeling good when I noticed that I'm totally being checked out by the kids in the car next to me... Ok, maybe laughed at by the kids in the car next to me. White girl, big SUV, 3 car seats in the back and rapping along with Kanye.

Embarrassing? Only slightly. The fact that it was then followed by the instrumental version of I'm a little teapot? Completely.

How incredibly uncool have I become?

I do this very same thing, and this very same song too!!

So there. I'm just as lame as you are.

I'm praying you've seen the movie Office Space and can relate this instance to a particular scene, classic.

You aren't uncool, they were probably thinking "Dang, I wish MY mom listened to Kanye!"

Was it the EXPLICIT instrumental version of I'm a little teapot?

Because at least that would have redeemed you a little bit.

My husband likes the true songs too, only problem, my 8 y.o. got a hold of his MP3 player and I got to hear my daughter singing truly graphic songs in the front yard, but only after several other people heard her first! Mom of the Year award coming my way soon!
