I had to quickly check on my very Christian, 78-year-old mother to make sure that she hadn’t been murdered and robbed when I heard Eminem’s “Lighters” ~blaring~ from her bedroom instead of gospel.
There she was, pleasantly cleaning and listening to the program transition on 99 JAMZ, a Florida radio station.
When I confronted the matriarch, she giggled with a hint of sarcasm, responding, “I know that you only like western (country) music.”
A late-life crisis? I think, not. I’m leaning toward possession…
The devil made her do it.
Once I heard another rap tune follow with lyrics to the effect of: “…she said they were real, I know by how they feel…”, I turned off the radio.
Mommy quickly came back to normal.
