    All of Taylor Swift's love songs are about me...just thought I'd get that out in the open.

    But back in reality, she's the smartest person in the music business. She writes songs that 12 yo girls can relate to and 12 yo girls buy her albums and vote on awards shows. My 4 1/2 yo girl loves all her songs because they're catchy and easy to sing. She's brilliant.
    And 12 yo girls vote on American Idol, too. When's the last time a girl won? It's been boys that 'tweens thought was cute the last 4 years?
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    I don't think it was intended to be an exact depiction of the Romeo and Juliet story, but a retelling with a happier ending.

    It still makes me want to punch her in the throat every time I hear it...

    Glad you're not in my office then... I'm playing it now.

    I like it b/c it's peppy, happy and the "I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress" part makes my heart bubble and eyes tear. I love that part. It says that love can win.

    Maybe it would be better for you to replace Romeo with Jack and Juliet with Jill.

    My personal "favorite" is people who say students can't comprehend most Shakespearean writings because they have nothing to relate to in them. Really? They've never had a bitch they wanted to see karma get but good (Taming of the Shrew)? They've never been in teenage angst love (Romeo and Juliet)? They've never been handed a raw deal (pick a play)? They've never wanted to kill everyone because they can (King Richard III)?
    Yeah. Kids today have nothing to relate to in Shakespeare.

    I found it hard to interpret Shakespeare in high school. It felt like a book of riddles that I wasn't smart enough to get.

    Well, I was thinking of something in the throat, but I digress.

    It also says "I don't care enough to ask you to marry me, but since you're pregnant, I talked to your dad and he said you better go get an off-white dress."

    Most school's nowadays recommend the books where on the left page is the original text and on the right page is either a modern translation or a lexicon for helping the kids understand. That's what mine recommended.
    (Granted, that's not what I got, because my parents had a heavy leatherette bound Complete Works of Shakespeare and I got handed that. I learned to read Middle English because I didn't have a choice not to.)

    * embarrassed cough *

    I hated Shakespeare in high school. I sneaked to the bookstore and bought myself the Cliffs Notes, and that was all I read.

    However, I did attend the Oregon Shakespeare Festival as an adult and enjoyed that very much.
