Ma (talking about Tyler Perry/OWN tv shows with my aunt over the phone): Naw Ion't look at dat. I can't be startin' dat this late in da game. I'll have to do one a those... one a those.... Danielle what you call dat thang where people watch summ'n fuh hours and days?

Me: Binge-watching?

Ma (to my aunt on the phone): Yeah, binge-watching. I'mma have to do dat.

No shade at all, I poke fun at her all the time but I actually lovelovelove when Ma is in her zone and lets all of her AAVE/Kentucky out through her speech. Reminds me of how warm it feels to speak freely, choosing to not speak "properly" precisely because you don't have to. :)
