In case you aren't a regular reader and haven't figured this out already, my 16 year old daughter and I are best friends. We are so much alike it's frightening.
As evidenced by a couple of recent text exchanges.
GTO: "Remember when you used to take me to the park and push me super high on the swing?"
Me: "Of course I do! ZOOM!!!"
GTO: "I'm at the park and I just remembered that! I love you dad."
Me: "Aww! I love you too!"
GTO: "I'm not busy this Sunday".*Jimmy is her boy friend. He's 16. He plays guitar. In a band. He has gauged ears the size of quarters!
Me: "Excellent! Let's have brunch and hang out!"
GTO: "Stuff white people like. Brunch. But yes. I concur."
Me: "LOL! We be white! I'm one cracker mofo!"
GTO: "Hahahaha... God I hate you. Jimmy* read that! I'm embarassed"
Me: "Ahahahahahaha! Schweeeeet!"
GTO: "I need to add that to your 'nono' words**".
Me: "You can do that on Sunday!"
**The "No-No Word" list was the result of a FEMALE CONSPIRACY between my daughter and my BFF to limit what I can say IN MY OWN HOME!
This list includes, but apparently is not limited to:
2. "Weak Sauce"
4. "I'm a HOOT!"
5. "Your mom!"
6. "I like Star Trek!"
7. 3-Day *anything* (As in "You 3-Day ugly! You was ugly yesterday, you ugly today, and you gonna be ugly tomorrow!")
8. Food Baby. (That super-full feeling in your tummy after a big meal.)
9. "Don't hate the Playah, hate The Game!"
10. "Da Bomb"
I'm single, I live alone and yet women still find a way to rule my life.
