That's fucking rad.
hah! Actually I sat on this script for days and days with no way to finish it. The shrimp thing hit me when she was listening to the Buffy Musical.
There's a ton of context missing. For instance, I don't even know if SHE knows "I'm under your spell" is sung by a girl to a girl. It's almost better this way, because she'll grow up knowing it as a pretty love song and when she finally sees it as being about two girls she won't miss a beat.
I wont be super offended if she's "interested" but not "interested with me in the room." That's super normal. As long as the good stuff is going into her head, I'll try not to get my feelings too hurt.
That's very kind of you to say. Thank you.
It's when you have like a cupcake around 2pm, right?
We took our daughter to Kids Karaoke at a sports themed restaurant when she was about 4 and there were 6 year olds singing Ke$ha songs while their moms just clapped and cheered. "Brushed my teeth with a bottle of Jack," sounds horrifically creepy coming out of a 6 year old little girl's mouth.
I had a lot of similar experiences growing up, where I had no idea how gross the common trope of "Man forces himself on woman and she's damn lucky for it!" in old TV and movies. I grew up on Nick At Night and most of those old 50's and 60's TV shows were pretty god damn sexist and rapey.
Like your Offspring situation: my daughter's musical taste is eclectic and odd considering that we don't listen to the radio or care much for current pop music in our house. Her current obsessions are the Annie (2014) soundtrack, Wizard Wrock videos she watches on YouTube (bands that play music exclusively about Harry Potter), and the Buffy Musical. The only exposure she gets to pop music is when they play KidzBop songs at school (which seems to be a lot). The only other music she ever hears is what my wife and I play in the car, so she knows a lot of They Might Be Giants, Decemberists and recently she's taken to a few White Stripes songs. I just assume she thinks everyone knows the songs she knows, when in fact I bet none of her friends have ever even heard ANYTHING she likes.
