Friday Advice Column for Wacky Mothers & Others

December 9th, 2005

Dear WackyMommy:

Help! My boys are acting like my brothers did when they were their age. This would be okay, but my brothers grew up to be total geeks! Are my boys destined to be total geeks too? Or can I change this? If so, how?



Dear My-Mother:

Now, you say this like there’s something wrong with being a geek. I love geeks — I live with three of them and I’m married to one of them. (I am not a geek. I’m a spaz. And technically, I would call Wacky Boy a dork more than a geek, at this phase. He put marbles in the feet of his sleeper last night, sat on the steps jingling them, and told me, “Mommy, I make music!” How cute and dorky is that?) To my way of thinking, there’s nothing worse than being “cool.” Cuz someday, you are destined to be “uncool.” Say, when you hit forty, and the girl at the coffeehouse is thinking, “He’s so sweet, that old guy. He reminds me kinda of my dad.”

Hello, mid-life crisis!

Go give those little geeks a hug from Wacky Mommy, and buy ’em a chemistry kit so they can blow something up.

    Geeks are dead sexy in my book. Bill Gates makes my heart go pitty pat. Give me a man with an enormous brain over a guy with big…biceps…any day! Yay geeks!
