About a year ago I went to an activity with about 100 8-12 year old girls. I was feeling pretty confident about my ability to relate to their hopes and dreams because, well, I read the whole Twilight series. Conversation would not be a problem.
Then, the karaoke came out and every single little girl knew EVERY word to EVERY song they played...and I hadn't heard a single one?!?! How can that be possible. I actually have a certain talent when it comes to learning song lyrics..and yet? Nothing!
It turned out I was too old to know any Hannah Montana and too young to have my own little girl swept into this pop culture craze.
Have you ever been in this kind of situation? The kind where you are merrily bopping along, thinking that you have a pretty good handle on things, assuming that you've pretty much figured out what's going on around you? You feel decently "hip."
...suddenly something happens and you're just dumbfounded to realize how wrong you were?
You've been missing out.
Well, it happened to me AGAIN last night. Have you heard of this awesome Amazon.com ratings/product review phenomenon? Turns out people are posting hilariously awesome product reviews on some items on amazon. They had me laughing so hard that I actually cried and FELL OUT OF MY CHAIR.
Do yourself a favor, click THIS LINK, scroll down to the bottom of the page to the product reviews and enjoy.
It's WAY better than learning the lyrics to Hannah Montana...I promise.
