Two Women; One Point of View
So I ask Charmaine, isn’t Britney Spears a God-fearing Jesus-loving celebrity superstar? Or is it Christina Aguilera?
“Britney Spears,” says Charmaine, who knows all things cultural. Charmaine has the female X-chromosome, which, as scientists have proven, is absorbed from the inner pages of People Magazine. “She is oh-so spiritual,” she says.
Not Christina Aguilera?
“I don’t think so,” says Charmaine.
“Christina, Britney — How would you know the difference?” I ask.
Charmaine says, “Britney is pregnant…”
“…And bare(foot) — just the way I like ’em.”
Charmaine doesn’t laugh.
Britney, the church-going-girl might be making money, but she’s not making a difference.
“So, there’s no ‘Christ’ in Christina?” I ask.
Charmaine still doesn’t laugh, “You’re still not funny.”
But she gives a thin smile.
I reply, even as my my extra Y-Chromosome rebels, “Yes dear.”
