Conversations with a 5-year-old

While listening to The Birthday Massacre in the car on the way to school this morning, and hunting for a song featuring lead singer Chibi’s “monster voice.”

Helen: “Dad, we need to find the song with the monster voice.”
Me: “OK, we’ll look.”
Helen: “Dad, who does the monster voice?”
Me: “Her name is Chibi. She’s the singer for the band.”
Helen: “Is she a real monster?”
Me: “No. She’s Canadian.”
Helen: “Really? Where does she live?”
Me: “Toronto.”
Helen: “Oh… Can we go visit her?”

Several minutes later, she became what I believe to be the world’s only five-year-old girl who sang Rammstein’s “Du Hast” on the walk from the car to Catholic school today.

Gotta love it.
