So the story: I took my 4 year old and her little friend to Karaoke with her siblings and mom yesterday afternoon. My little person loves to sing. There were mikes in the room and the kids just loved every song. They requested Rihanna songs and everything in between. My little 4 year old knew every word to this Taylor Swift song and she danced and sang to the music and I just had tears in my eyes. I want you to sing this with your child. It is precious. Here is the video too.
Love Story lyrics
We were both young when I first saw you I close my eyes And the flashback starts I’m standing there On a balcony in summer air See the lights See the party, the ball gowns I see you make your way through the crowd And say hello, little did I know That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles And my daddy said stay away from Juliet And I was crying on the staircase Begging you please don’t go, and I said Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone I’ll be waiting all there’s left to do is run You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess It’s a love story baby just say yes So I sneak out to the garden to see you We keep quiet ’cause we’re dead if they knew So close your eyes Escape this town for a little while ‘Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter And my daddy said stay away from Juliet But you were everything to me I was begging you please don’t go and I said Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone I’ll be waiting all there’s left to do is run You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess It’s a love story baby just say yes Romeo save me, they try to tell me how to feel This love is difficult, but it’s real Don’t be afraid, we’ll make it out of this mess It’s a love story baby just say yes Oh oh I got tired of waiting Wondering if you were ever coming around My faith in you is fading When I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said Romeo save me I’ve been feeling so alone I keep waiting for you but you never come Is this in my head? I don’t know what to think He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring And said, marry me Juliet You’ll never have to be alone I love you and that’s all I really know I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress It’s a love story baby just say yes Oh, oh, oh, oh ‘Cause we were both young when I first saw you
Here we go again…a few weeks ago I told you about an incident with a woman who told me to go back to where I come from because she thought I was not parking fast enough at the Starbucks parking lot. Another racist incident took place again at the Ralphs Supermarket checkout line in Westwood. The sad part is…the race of the person today is the same race as the lady from Starbucks.
Here is what happened today – this older lady with an accent told me to let her go first because she was handicapped and old and that Americans would let her go first but since I am not American I did not know better. I said I am American, I was born here and you have an accent and obviously you were not born here so you should be taught that Americans come in all colors and I was born here. I also said IF you were not rude to me, I would have let you go first seeing that you are older, but because you are rude, mean, and obnoxious I will not allow you to go before me in line since I have been waiting in line for my turn this whole time.
She then calls over the manager at Ralphs and says, you tell her to move to another line she is not American and she needs to move to another line. I am old and handicapped and I need to go before her. The dumbest part of this whole story is: The guy who worked at Ralphs asked if I would like to move so this woman could go before me. I said no, I will wait my turn I am next, you can move her since she was rude and obnoxious to me.
He moved her and opened a new check out line for her. As he moved her she accused me of not being American again…
Argh. This is so annoying. I was born in the US, I speak English wihout an accent. When are these people going to learn to say something else? I mean really – she was the one with an accent and she was obviously from another country- it just gets me so mad. My parents were immigrants but we don’t go around saying mean things to other people. Isn’t life hard enough without all this ridicoulous behavior?
