Ain't nobody got time for that!

In case you haven't seen this viral video, here it it.  Please watch the whole thing.  And then know I am laughing because you can't get the song out of your head.

I showed it to Lewis when I saw it, and then a few weeks later we had friends over.  I mentioned it in passing and since they hadn't seen it, I pulled it up on YouTube on the TV.  Britton was also in the room and saw it, but I didn't think anything of it.

Fast forward to today, which is about 4-6 weeks since he saw it on TV.  We are walking into the downtown Post Office and as we make our way in, there is a rather large African American woman being very dramatic as she speaks to her friend.  I'm talking head waving like a chicken and finger pointing and a raised voice.  I really didn't pay much attention, I just wanted to get in and out.  As I opened the door to let the boys in ahead of me, Britton looked up at me and says, "Mom, don't got time for that!".  In a split second, I knew what he was referring to and I could NOT stop laughing. He said it with such a straight face.

I still snicker as I remember it.  Current media has touched my boy.  It's amazing what little sponges they are, especially when you don't think they are paying attention or doubting what they will remember.
