Mory Gets a History Lesson

Miranda and I get along pretty well, and there's usually not too much friction despite having been born 7 years apart. I think having 2 older brothers helped her keep in touch with the previous generation which now makes her seem very knowledgeable. There are notable exceptions to this however.

"OH.... MY..... GOD" Miranda yelled as I walked in the door. It was 1997 and I was at home from college visiting on the weekend. "Did you hear? Will Smith is trying to rap now!"

"Will Smith? The Fresh Prince? Trying to rap?" I sarcastically replied.

"I know! He should seriously stick to acting" she bit.

"It's not even the Summa Summa Summa Time" I continued.

She was used to me saying things nobody understood and gave me that, "God you're lame" look that every 13 year old female has etched in to her DNA. She dismissed me with a final roll of the eyes and took off down the hall.

"I've gotta go call Katrina and tell her about this."


  1. been saving this one for a while, eh? you recalled this a couple weeks ago so either you're just now finding time to blog about it or... you're just that hard up for material!
    either way, senor anti-social, i'm still reading.

  2. The first thing that came to mind when reading this was that episode of Family Guy.

    "Wooooo, ha ha, I respect women when I'm on a date. I take 'em to the park or maybe a museum and I only try to kiss 'em if they really woo hooo, what what ah what I say what what, wooo hoo."

    Hehehe. :)

  3. G,
    Yeah, I've usually got about 10 sitting in the chamber ready to be shot out. They're usually not good ideas, and I finish them as I see fit.

    I've been hard up for material since... probably the day Ruthie moved.

    I might have to check this "Family Guy" out someday.

  4. Who's Will Smith? Is he that guy married to Jada Pinkett? That guy raps?
