The Scene

Friday, December 12, 2008
Okay, close your eyes and driving to school. little girl in the back seat reading, Angel in the back seat "playing" a Gameboy and Future Trooper in the front passenger seat. We are listening to XM 35, Holly, All Christmas music~'I saw Mommy kissing Santa Clause' comes on....this is the conversation that follows:

Future Trooper: Turn that up, I like that one.

Me (turning up): Yeah, I do too.

FT: Who sings this one?

Me: Michael Jackson

FT: That is a guy singing?

Me: Well, yeah, he was about 5 or 6 years old. He has a great voice.

Long Silence.

FT:Mom? Was Michael Jackson still black then?

Me: Well, yeah, he was black then and he is black now.

FT: I have seen him Mom and he is white. I think he was black until after Thriller. Have you ever seen that video?

Me: Yeah, he was black then and is black now and I have seen Thriller about a million times.

Maybe he was right.
It is a sad life I lead.
