Overheard at my apartment complex; one resident to another:
I never knew the names of these women since I was only eavesdropping, so I've made names up.
Yolanda: How are your grand babies? Jay has gotten so big since the last the I saw her.
Virginia: Honey Child, they are growing so fast! Do you know what Jay told me the other day? She said, "Gigi, I don't want to be a ballerina anymore. I wanna take hip hop with the big girls!"
Yolanda: Oh my!
Virginia: I know! & her parents are going to let her! You know what I said to them? I said, "I'm just going to go ahead and buy a pole for her room so she can start practicing." I don't care if she quits ballet; my parents made me play the violin till I was 16 & I hated it. Every time I see or hear a violin now, the hairs on my neck stand up. Straight up! You wouldn't believe it.
But I just think, I just don't think no five year old has no business taking hip hop classes. There ain't no good place that road can lead.
Yolanda: Mhm. I wouldn't let her take that class.
Virginia: Kids these days, I tell ya', they just growing up so fast. Can even fill a bra out before they're ready to take those bras off for money. I tell you this country is going straight to hell.
