My daughter is a typical teenager. She always has the music cranked up in her room, and when she's not in her room, she has earbuds in her ears listening to iPod music.
This evening, she came downstairs rapping to one of Nicki Minaj's songs. I couldn't understand a darn word she was saying. (I probably didn't want to , either.)
"How the heck do you learn that stuff? It sounds like a bunch of jibberish," I said.
"I learned it all in two hours."
"Two hours?" I couldn't believe it, because there's no way I could learn it in two hundred years. "You should spend that time on your school work," I said.
"But Mom," she said. "I is already doing fine in school. I is gifted."
Yeah, you is!
