Playing with the cool kids

(After too many beers and mojito mixes on a Friday night...)

"So do you think we're cool?"

"What do you mean cool? As opposed to being geeks? "I freakin' love Celine Dion*" type geeks?"

"Yeah, like that. I mean, Grant and Sophie, I think they're cool. They've got great taste in music."

" They do like a lot of what we like. What is this, high school? And who's to say that we're not geeks anyway, who just happen to like cool music?"

"Yeah. We should have a party and play the 80's music trivia game that I played at my departmental get-together. I slaughtered everyone. We ARE geeks."

"We should do that. And you watch, I'll wipe you. I mean I'll swipe your ...I mean wipe your ... wait, scratch that ... KICK your ...ASS. You know what I mean."

(And that, folks, is how drunk, exhausted and geeky middle-aged parents of young children who live in the 'burbs talk. While wishing that they had the energy to be doing something fun as opposed to sinking further into their "coma couch" trying to keep their eyes open for the 11 o'clock news...)

This time, I'm not a geek. Temporarily, anyway. The 'other' me is playing with the cool folks.

My first ever guest post, at the home of the cool and beautiful JustMiss.

Check it out.

(*And I know that Miss does love the occasional Celine tune; but trust me, she's still beyond kool.)

That is too funny. I had a couple over Saturday night playing Trivial Pursuit and discussing whether or not we were the oldest 30 year olds in the world. I think the answer is...yes.

LOL! You all can 'hang' better than I can. I'm such a lightweight. Just a tiny whiff of beer, and I'm barely conscious.

LOVED your guest post!

This was great! I would hang with you cool geeks any day.

I could only wish that knowing 80's trivia made you cool - I'd be the Queen of Cool.

Miss said...

Celine is awesome and secretly, you agree with me!!!!!!!

Thanks for guest posting, I loved it!

I would love to come to the '80s party. And I would also kick some butt with '80s music trivia!

Sounds like a late night at our house.

We are even less cool, there is no conversation at all...just slumping...

:)

Laski said...

I'm confused. What's wrong with Celine?

I'm the ring leader of uncool. I mean, have you met me???

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

I am constantly saying stuff like that too, especially when I am at my kid's school - I got kicked out of the cool club earlier this year because of a disagreement on a volunteer situation. Have no fear, I still worm my way to their "table". I'm always telling my high school daughter "don't think its over when you graduate - oh no, high school lives on FOREVER!" It's just that you get better at it and you come to realize, correctly, that YOU are always the cool table.

I like to watch tv shows with kids. Especially I like to watch Power Rangers TV Show with my younger brother and sister.
