Random Scene From the Day
CRAIG is the 18 year old son of a co-worker/friend that I've known for more than 10 years now. In that time I've hung with their family quite a bit.Craig and I both love cartoons, have similar tastes when it comes to comedy/music/movies and in a way I'd say I'm like an unofficial Godmother to him. It's a bit out of the ordinary as he is as black as I am white but because of my origins (Detroit) and my extensive knowledge in the realms of rap music, he finds me to be one of "cool ones". Racist lil' shit. But that's the set up. Here's an excerpt of our brief conversation from this afternoon when he stopped by the office after school.
Not a thang man, not a thang. (I over do trying to be cool. Sue me.)
Wadda you got goin' on?
I.D.K.? Did you just verbally text me?
I mean you do realize that we are actually speaking to each other right now and that in doing so, we should use full words and not acronyms right?
(stifling a huge smile)
Oh YEAH man...yeah! I'm sorry.
(full blown laughter)
This is W.T.F. is wrong with your generation.
