Hello, my name is Anna, and I'm a dork

Nolan and I were watching tv when I looked up and noticed the time.

"Where is your father?"  I grouched.  "He said he was going to be home an hour ago; and I came home just for him.  I'm going to kick his ass,"  I added.

Just then, Ben hollers:  "Dad's home!!"

Nolan sits up on the bed, nodding appreciatively, "'re goood."

"You remember that,"  I told him, raising an eyebrow.

I'm really not.  But how could I not take advantage of a coincidence like that?  Better he think I know all than he know the truth. 

Like today, for example, I had high-speed internet installed in my house.  But before I could be seduced by it's fabulosity, I had little hitch.  Great signal, the tech got it to work on the laptop; he left and boom, no surfy for me.  I was annoyed, but figured I'd get to it later, or I'd call everyone I knew for "tech support."  Later, when I had time, I started looking at the router, the modem, and touched some of the cords, checking the connections.  I wasn't even really thinking about it; yet when I tried to get on the internet again, it worked.  THE CORD WAS LOOSE.  We must've bumped it when I moved that part of the wall unit back in.  Doh!  And isn't that the first question they ask you when you call for help:  "Did you check the connections?"  Double doh!

So, it's a) admit I am the dork that I really am, or b) let the boy think I totally rock. 

Hmm, which would you choose?

I agree with you. All children should think their parents rock for as long as they are gullible enough to believe it! lol

When they talk about grading on "the curve" in your hometown I always picture something more along the lines of a speedbump. You're not a dork. Dorks don't bring cupcakes.
