"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.)
