And this gem which somehow included me.
Cassie...Mom, are you dancing to Trap Queen* right
Mom: What! It's got a
great beat! *dances in the car*
Step Dad: What's he singing about smoking? Bopity-opu? Does he mean dope? I want whatever he's smoking it sounds
Cassie... *dies in the backseat* *Apparently Trap Queen is a rap group
