Response to It’s Time To Choose The Song Of The Summer:
Shut Up and Dance. Duh.
When my now 21-year-old daughter was a toddler she wanted me to buy her a Barbie doll at Target. I refused to buy it and she had a complete meltdown in the store. Embarrassed, I checked out as quickly as possible as she yelled and screamed, and after I put her in her car seat and started to drive, I said to her “Do you know what the people in that store were saying? They were saying ‘look at that little girl who screams and cries when she does not get what she wants.’” She came back at me with, “NO, they were saying ‘LOOK AT THAT BIG FAT MAMA WHO NEVER TAKES A SHOWER!’” I was like, What the…?
This girl was obviously desperately depressed and reaching out for help, not knowing which way to turn. Thank God she did not abuse or kill her child. Don’t make fun of mentally ill people unless you have walked in their shoes.
