Last night my 15 year old son was singing a song and I started laughing.
Me: “What is it you’re singing about, a ‘thrift shop’?
G: “Yeah mom, it’s really funny and get’s stuck in your head, but you’d think it was inappropriate.”
I quickly googled the song/video to see how UN-cool I was these days. He was right. It was funny. It was catchy. And it definitely would get an R rating. I called Hubs over to watch the video for a second time and we BOTH had a good laugh.
In a nutshell, a white rapper named Macklemore sings a rap about thrift store shopping. Instead of singing about popping Cristal champagne in his designer clothes in the clubs, he sings about finding clothes in the thrift shop for cheap and how it is ‘Effin’ Awesome,” and how “One man’s trash is another’s comeuppance.” Truth. That is a very watered down mom version. But it is FunNeeee if you are a thrifter.
Hubs: “Do you think that you would think that video is so funny if you didn’t go to thrift stores?”
Me: “Probably not.”
But I finally got these $20 chairs recovered the other day and they are “Effin Awesome!”
