look ma thats me on screen

  • <b> Friend:</b> You love Beyoncé a little too much.<p/><b>Me:</b> There's no such thing.<p/><b>Friend:</b> What about this Christmas ornament with her face on it?<p/><b>Me:</b> It was a gift.<p/><b>Friend:</b> And these dinner plates with 'Yonce' on them.<p/><b>Me:</b> Those were on sale.<p/><b>Friend:</b> *points to computer screen* What about this petition to have her sainted by the Catholic Church?<p/><b>Me:</b> The person who made the petition also made an excellent argument.<p/><b>Friend:</b> You're not even Catholic!<p/><b>Me:</b> I respect all religions.<p/><b>Friend:</b> Ok, what about this? If your ma and Beyoncé were hanging from a cliff, and you could only save one of them...Who would you save?<p/><b>Me:</b> Ok, look, that's enough. I love Beyoncé. I admire her. I am inspired by her. So what if I'm a little enthusiastic sometimes in my support of her? It doesn't mean I worship the woman. And to ask if I would choose her over my mother is insulting. I love my mom more than anyone else in the world. She gave birth to me. She raised me. We have a very close, fulfilling mother-daughter relationship. No one on this earth could compete with her, and I'll thank you to remember that.<p/><b>Friend:</b> Uh-huh. So you'd pick your ma and drop Beyoncé?<p/><b>Me:</b> Of course!<p/><b>Friend:</b> Just checking. *walks away*<p/><b>Me:</b> ....<p/><b>Me:</b> .....<p/><b>Me:</b> ....... Besides. Beyoncé can fly.<p/>
