Christian and I often times have the most random, sometimes weird conversations. Of course it’s all totally normal to us… I only realize how weird we really are when I share these conversations with other people. There was one point in our relationship where he confessed to me that sometimes when he’s driving, he likes to listen to the spanish channel on the radio because he doesn’t know what they’re saying so he can just kind of zone out. I told him I totally understood this, because I do the same thing, only with hardcore rap. (I can’t do the spanish channel because it makes me crave chips and salsa. Every. Single. Time.)
Knowing I’m a fan of Luda (the rapper ‘Ludacris’ for those of you who aren’t familiar with the rap world), Christian asked me if he was my go-to and I told him NO – I’m talking like hardcore rap… the ones you find on some random, college radio station… the rappers no one’s ever heard of, where most of the time you can’t understand what they’re rapping about but the beat is just sick (that’s code for ‘awesome’ for those of you who aren’t familiar with the rap world).
Case in point, a text conversation from a few weeks ago…
Em: I’m listening to the New Music station on Spotify. Current song is by Aesop Rock, song is called ‘Cat Food.’ It’s hardcore rap. They literally meow in one part of it. Basically I’m in my happy place.
X: Wait… it’s hardcore rap… with a kitten meowing in it… sounds ruthless.
Em: No it’s not a kitten. It’s a rapper. He meows. I don’t even know what it’s about but I’m totally feelin’ this beat. Check it out and picture me waving my hands up and down.
X: I’d like to call this conversation, “Married to my Gangsta Wife.”
