That Sensitive Age Where Your Geek Comes Out

| Related | April 9, 2013

(I am female. I am trying to get my parents to let me see the new ‘Iron Man’ movie.)

Me: “If you want, I could go with [Male Friend #1]?”

Mum: “I’m not so sure…”

Me: “I could always invite [Male Friend #2], and [Female Friend]?”

Mum: “Well, I suppose I could give you money, but you’d have to wait for the next pay-check.”

Me: “If only I had the same amount of dollars as I do rupees.”

Dad: “What?”

Me: “Rupees are the currency on a game called Legend of Zelda. They are easy to get, and I have lots of them.”

Mum: “I wonder… No, can’t be…”

Me: “What?”

Mum: “Nothing.”

(An ad for costumes then comes on the TV. A Star Trek uniform, complete with com-badge, is advertised.)

Me: “OOH! LOOK AT THAT! THAT IS SO COOL!”

Mum: “Yep, that confirms it.”

Mum And Dad: “Our daughter’s a geek.”
