"So mom today, so and so(friends of kid) got really upset because that person called her EMO. Mom just sitting there listening and smiling. Kid again "She was so mad because she's all like I'm not EMO I'm a Sense. I don't cut. I'm just smiling acting like I even have 1/2 a clue WTH is being said here? For the record, I have NO idea what a sense is? My guess is it's not EMO which is my version of PUNK! And I'm guessing EMo is part goth and a cutter?
Kid looks at me and said you know what I mean right? My response, "Oh, yea. I totally know what you mean." Then Kid starts talking about a some band named Fire Party, and how EMO they are." And, I responded with EMO I think that band is punk. Kid says, What do you mean Punk? I think all these kids today trying to be Punk like the Ramones or the Sex Pistols from my time who are just that. Trying to be what we already did." Kids response, "WHO?" "Is that an oldies band?" What year was that like 1970? I laughed and said, "no, that was actually the 80's I was only 5. But thanks for aging me like that.
This all made me realize, I'm not as cool as I once was.
