Rock Star to One... A Geek to Another

Filed under you just can’t make this crap up…

I really wish sometimes there was another adult in the car with me… someone I could laugh with. I laugh with Ringo, but it’s not the same, because although he found this funny, there is no way in hell he found it as funny and bizarre as I did.

The following conversation ensued in the asexual Mom-mobile this morning, to the best of my recollection.

Bones: And Elvis. He tried so hard to look like a Rock Star.

(My ears started to perk.)

Mr. T: I know.

Bones: I mean, what was up with that. He thought he was so cool…

Me: Wait. What Elvis are you talking about?

(My line of thought was that it had something to do with some contrived fake Elvis on Spongebob or some other show they’ve watched.)

Bones: You know. Elvis Presley.

Me: *Blink*

Bones: Thought he was so cool… trying to act like a Rock Star.

Me: Bones. He was cool. He was THE Rock Star. He was the KING of Rock. Everyone else in Rock is who they are because of HIM.

Bones: Oh.

Good grief.

This is sort of off topic. Don't know if you saw it already, but I think it is great. What a life this guy has had!

Oh, how I do like reading the conversations with your sons...

Kids have an interesting angle on what's important, don't they?

I will never get Elvis. The Beatles? Oh yes. Elvis? Nuh uh. You tell Bones I'm with him all the way.
