Back when Lindsay Lohan was the New Black, I celebrated the premiere of Freaky Friday with my best friend and my mom. In fact, my friend and I wore matching Hawaiian shirts to the cinemas, and my mom took pictures.
Back then, Mom and I used to say “Shut up”–but only spoken sarcastically as they did in the movie. We said this periodically to each other until I was eighteen.
Now things have changed. Now I have a friend from college who came up with another catch phrase. No offense, Mommy, but I’ve grown up: “Bitch please.”
