I know we’re a publication that caters to Black women, but some things are just universal.
Yesterday a friend of mine posted the video, “Shit Girls Say,” on his Facebook page and I found myself laughing and nodding in agreement.
Although I was initially thrown off by the fact that the main character was actually a man dressed as a woman, the entire piece had me cracking up and wondering how many times I’ve said some of these things. Almost instantly, I saw my mother. She’s always calling to ask me to look something up, help her with the computer, and when we’re together, grab something out of her purse.
What I liked about “Shit Girls Say” is that it isn’t the least bit offensive, but rather observational. The creators — Graydon Sheppard and his boyfriend Kyle Humphrey–were able to capture many of the nuances of our conversations, tones, and situations. And perhaps it’s just me, but I thought it was hilarious.
How about you…did you like “Shit Girls Say”? What would you add to the list?
