Me: So what did you guys think?! (Because I actually kinda enjoyed it. Even in annoying 3-D in which they bend you over for $5 more a ticket just to wear those stupid glasses that instantly give you a headache.)
Niece: (ranting authoritatively) (as only a 12 year old girl can) That was terrible! He's being exploited and is going to burn out. They even sell Justin Bieber PAJAMAS at Walmart! Gross! I didn't like him before and I DON'T like him now! I'm totally NOT telling my friends I saw that movie. Ewwwwwwww!
Middle: Well, I liked it. He's cool!
Eldest: (shrugging) I liked when it showed him performing and when he was hanging out with his friends.
Niece: (still fuming) His voice is totally going to sound different when he hits puberty! And then what will he do?
Eldest: Puberty? What do you mean?
(Keep in mind I'm listening to all this going on in the backseat as I'm driving...)
Niece: Well, puberty for boys means that when they get older, their voices change. Their voices get deeper and then they sound different.
Eldest: (TOTALLY matter-of-factly) Huh. Because my dad says it's when you get hair on your balls.
[Sound of awkward silence from my Niece who doesn't quite know how to respond.]
[Sound of me choking back hysterical laughter.]
[Sound of both Eldest and Middle wondering why no one is talking anymore.]
Awesomest Comment: So funny. Your niece is going to forever associate Justin Bieber with hairy balls. At least she didn't like him anyway.--Anne
