Kids say...

There's this 7-year old Ghanaian boy (let's call him E) who's family owns a little market next to where I work. Lately, he's been stopping by to visit regularly, which I'm sure is partly due to the fact that they do not have AC in there. The other having to do with his need to listen to Chris Brown on my ipod.

E: Kids at school make fun of me because I'm the only black boy at school
me: ?!
E: I lie and say that my parents are from Los Angeles or Las Vegas.
me: You should be proud of where you're from and who you are. Kids say a lot of stupid things!
E: Noooo, these are smart kids!


E: I wish I was big already and had muscles so that I could get all the hot girls and just ::starts humping the air::
me: ::looks at him like he's crazy::
E: You should go out with cousin. He knows the words to all the songs on the radio.
me: really?...
E: Yea, and everyday he dresses like he's goin' to a party!
E: And he has nice abs! Does your BF have abs?
me: Don't you have some toys to you need to go play with?


E: A lot of girls at school like me 'cause I'm handsome. One told me she wants to have sex with me.
me: What?! What the hell is wrong with you kids?!
E: Me?! I told her we're too young to do that. I can only have sex if I'm married and if I know where the girl lives.


OMG kids these day are insane. Cute, but insane. What the hell did I know about that stuff when I was 7? I remember it took me ages to work up the courage to ask mom to sign the permission slip for sex ed class in junior high!
