This is me. Fearing for the future of our nation.

Girl on treadmill next to me at gym to other girl on other treadmill at gym:
OH MY GAWD Y'ALL! Britteny Shakira is SO SMART.

Other girl: Yeah!

First girl: For real y'all! Like last night, I SWEAR TO GOD, she was talking to Connor Taylor Braden Billy-Ray and he was all like, "You don't know what SILLY starts with!" All teasing her and all? And she was like UH HUH! I do too! It starts with a C! And I was all like OH MY GOD Y'ALL! She is SO SMART!

Other girl: That IS really smart! She's SO SMART!

First girl: I know! She's only four! Oh my GOD! She's going to win like, an Oscar or something!

Other girl: LINDSEY! Duh! You mean a Nobel Peace Prize!

First girl: Whatever! She's probably going to like...really smart. Like Victorian of her class or some crap!

Other girl: Then nobody will want to take her to prom though.

First girl, appearing horrified: That would ruin like, her entire life!









I'm not kidding.

I weep for humanity.

Oh no. You are not serious.

For some reason, that entire thing I imagined the voice of Jamie Presley. (Not sure if that's how you spell her name??)

Anyways. You made it funny (of course) and there is hope...because of parents like us! :)

I recommend turning up your i-tunes or you will be locked in despair forever. This type of conversation is everywhere...especially since everyone has decided that talking on their cell phones at top volume is somehow ok in every public place.

I will think about that at work tomorrow and bust a gut laughing..!

Oh sweet lord save us.

I know you aren't, I have witnessed this sort of conversation, myself. But this does make me giggle. How can these kids make it through life?

Have a wonderful day. :)

I think that little Britteny Shakira's life is already ruined.

Don't be afraid. They only have the power to vote, drive and buy guns. What could go wrong?

Is it bad that I don't even know who Britteny Shakira is?

One word?


Nhuu huhhh. Shut up! (ok 3 words:) I can't believe they said that. But you are in the south.

That was almost painful to read.

Oh mah lawd.

For some reason I imagine them sounding like that girls voice in that weird ass commercial where there is a pothole in the road, talking. I think it's a tire commercial or something?
