Let's play a little game.


We'll it...

Guess How This Rapper Died

The Spawn and I were sitting on the couch tonight after dinner. She was talking a mile a minute about Post Malone's new tattoo and asking if she should be Post Malone for Halloween.

"I think I want to be Post Malone for Halloween. Did you know you can his tattoos on Amazon? See, !"

She started to show pictures of people who were wearing the Post Malone tattoos... etc.

The next thing I know the conversation has morphed into a show and tell of rappers with tattoos who are now dead.

"Guess how this rapper died!"

"Um, I don't know. What the heck is wrong with his teeth?"

"It's called a grill, jeez Mom. He was shot in his car right after he bought a motorcycle."

"How do you know this??"

"Everyone knows this...."

The next thing I know the Spawn in rolling her eyes and moving on to the next dead rapper.

"Guess how this rapper died!"

"I don't think I like this game."

"Mom! Guess!"

"I don't know. Someone poisoned his soup."

"Seriously?? him, he died of a drug overdose."

I could see the disapproval written all over her ... Still makes chuckle. I ended up telling her I didn't need to know that kind of stuff because I had her to keep in the loop.

"You know, I won't be around forever."

" pretty sure I'll be ok with my limited rapper knowledge."

I hardly ever see or hear from my oldest son. He's off, doing his own thing, and I did raise him to be strong and independent. But, I still miss the days when he would stop in and visit me at work every day.

    Hi secret_lade

    that glitch has been there for awhile

    hmm

    it's all about the interaction with your loved ones

    when my daughter turned 16 I grounded her for 4 hours a month, no phone, no car, just dad and her

    she hated it at first, but, then we did some fun things, went to concerts, movies, sushi places, shopping, just some good ole' one to one time with father/daughter

    we still go to places, we did a meet & greet with "Coldplay" on one of our concerts, we saw Dave Chapelle, some good memories

    thanks for sharing

    thought of this one, while watching Pitch Perfect 3...

    not "Short People", just sayin'

    hmm

    George Michael - "Freedom! '90"

    Heaven knows I was just a young boy
    Didn't know what I wanted to be
    I was every little hungry schoolgirl's pride and joy
    And I guess it was enough for me
    To win the race, a prettier face
    Brand new clothes and a big fat place
    On your rock and roll TV
    But today the way I play the game is not the same
    No way
    I think I'm gonna get me some happy
    I think there's something you should know
    I think it's time I told you so
    There's something deep inside of me
    There's someone else I've got to be
    Take back your picture in a frame
    Take back your singing in the rain
    I just hope you understand
    Sometimes the clothes do not make the man
    All we have to do now
    Is take these lies and make them true somehow
    All we have to see
    Is that I don't belong to you
    And you don't belong to me, yeah yeah
    I won't let you down
    (Freedom)
    I will not give you up
    (Freedom)
    Gotta have some faith
    Gotta have some faith in the sound
It's been a few years since I really blogged regularly, I hadn't really had the issue until it started last Friday.

There are times when my kids get mad at me because I make them text me and check in and ask them a million questions when they've gone to events or friends houses. I usually tell them....

"Geez, it's got to like really SUCK for you.... You know.... Having a mom who like loves you and cares about you and wants to make sure you are like safe and taken care of.... Like HOW do you handle that kind of attention???"

This usually gets a laugh because I pull out the old Valley Girl dialect from my youth and roll my eyes a bunch.

I ended up telling her we needed to change the subject, I didn't like the subject matter. She sighed and said.... "ooookkkkk"

She doesn't actually listen to it, I'm not really sure how she got all this rapper knowledge. She's a kid though, and, fads and trends are their whole world at this age.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

    Sort of a morbid game of guessing. But it seems there are so many rappers that have short lifespans and drugs and shooting are often involved.

I was definitely not into the conversation. I don't think she really understands it all. She's 12, doesn't have any real experience with death and loss.
