My mom was visiting the local Macy’s in Rockawy, NJ. My mom loves shopping- what a surprise. The clicking and clonking of her shoes hitting the ground echoes throughout the store. She was glancing at some 1990’s label named shirts, sweaters, or pants. While minding her own business- she thought that a cute piece of clothing would jump out and catch her attention.
Suddenly a high pitched voice of a baby abruptly starts shouting.
“Fuck it, Fuck it, Fuck it!”
This baby happened to be my 3-year-old self- in the stroller. I was bouncing up and down- and wouldn’t stop chanting “Fuck it!” People started to jerk their heads up from being immersed in staring at Macy’s clothing, to wondering where this fowl mouthed voice is coming from.
People close to where my mom was at- started to burst out laughing. My mom didn’t find it that hilarious, and rushed to put her hand over my mouth (relax, she wasn’t trying to suffocate me). These people were probably wondering where such a young child learned this kind of pirate language.
Anyhow, it turned out to be a funny light-hearted moment in the lives of all those 1994 shoppers aka stay at home moms-probably.
Turns out my 3-year-old self wasn’t too young to learn the wonderful lesson that comes when life bombards you with nonsense everyday- “Fuck it!”
