Conversations I've Overheard, 1st Edition

So I'm on the subway, when two 20-something Black women who are apparently old firends ran into each other. During the course of hugs and laughter and reminiscing, I overheard the following exchange:

"So how about you little sister, Shaniqua? How's she doing?"
"Girl, you should see her, you wouldn't believe how grown up she is!"
"Oh yeah? I guess it really has been a long time."
"Yeah, girl, she all grown up now; she just had her first abortion."
"Oh, okay, I guess she grown for real!"

Now, I'm for women having the right to choose, but just...damn...
