So, last night, Mr. Belding and I were having a conversation about Amy Grant. (Note: When I make a statement like that, it’s best not to question it, dear readers. Let’s just keep moving, shall we?) And he apparently didn’t realize that Miz Grant sang anything other than gospel/Christian music.
Now, it is widely assumed that Mr. Belding is smarter than yours truly, because he has a degree in chemical engineering from UVA, he outscored me on the SAT, etc., etc. But that’s just a lazy assumption. If you scratch the surface, you’ll find that *I* am actually smarter than Mr. B, because (for example) I can name all the members of the Supreme Court AND all the members of the Backstreet Boys, N*Sync, and NKOTB. And clearly, I have wicked street smarts, because I know Amy Grant sang such secular hits as “Baby Baby”:
Do you know that when I stated with authority that Amy Grant sang “Baby Baby” and hummed a few bars for his listening pleasure, Mr. Belding had THE AUDACITY to question me? “Are you sure Amy Grant sings that?”
B*tch said WHAT? OF COURSE I’M SURE! You think a Midwestern tweenager in the ’90s is going to forget a perm like that? Or that hat? Or those romantic antics?
Here’s to you, Amy Grant. To me, you are unforgettable.
