Hello friends! It’s time for another installment of No Filter Friday. This is the time that I love to share things that the girls have said or done that have left us red-faced, laughing, and sometimes speechless. One of my favorite parts of Skylar’s autism has been the total lack of “filter” that she possess. In many ways it is refreshing how brutally honest she is, but it can be embarrassing. If you are new to my blog or missed previous posts, you can click here for a complete list of No Filter Friday stories.
Today’s post is another blast from the past. Yesterday we had to go down to Phoenix for an appointment and since I can’t drive, (read this post to see why) Chris drove us down. We were chatting on the way home about No Filter Friday ideas and Chris mentioned this story. We loved remembering it and just laughed! So today I’m going to share this funny story with you.
When Skylar was in the 1st grade, we were stationed in Dayton, Ohio. As we were getting her ready for school one morning we had the radio on in the background. We were listening to a local Top 40’s station. Just to give you a little information about our music preferences, Chris and I like all different kinds of music, but neither of us have ever really listened to rap music. We just haven’t. The extent of our rap music background is some old school DC Talk. Because of this, our children do not have any knowledge of names of rap singers or groups.
I was in the bathroom putting on my makeup when the music stopped and the DJ came on to share various news stories. One of the stories involved the rapper, Ludacris. The DJ wrapped up a few news issues and then said “When we come back I will be sharing a story about Ludacris”. Skylar immediately got upset. She was teary-eyed when she came into the bathroom and the following exchange took place:
Skylar: That lady on the radio made a poor choice. She called dad a bad name.
Me: What do you mean she called dad a bad name?
Skylar: Well she said “When we come back I have a story about looney Chris”.
Chris and I started cracking up. Skylar of course was upset that we were laughing about the DJ calling Chris a looney. We quickly explained to her that there is a rapper named Ludacris and that the DJ was talking about him and not calling her daddy a “looney Chris”.
We still laugh about this today! And, just in case you don’t know the difference. This is Ludacris:
And THIS is Looney Chris:
Hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend!
Make it a great one!
