My best friend Shoeb’s text tone is Area Codes by Ludacris and Nate Dogg. The line where Luda says, “I’ve got hoes.” Because he’s got hoes. Anyway, I was texting him, and Adam (my eight year old precocious brother, for those of you who are unfamiliar) heard it and started repeating it.
Me: DON’T SAY THAT.
Adam: What? I’ve got holes?
Me: Hoes. Don’t say that.
Adam: Hoes? What’s wrong with that?
Me: It’s a demeaning and vulgar word. Short for whore.
Adam: OHHHH like in that song, “Don’t trust a…never trust a…won’t trust a…”
Me: YES, LIKE IN THAT SONG, now stop saying it.
Adam: So does that mean Santa Claus goes around calling kids hoes?
