Not a Triceratops

Katie was complaining about something this morning, something silly. I laughed into the phone.

"Oh, Babe. You so 2000 and late."

Her screech nearly gave me the new cartilage piercing I want.

What did you say?

"You know...I'm so 3008; you so 2000 and late."

Again with the shriek: How do you KNOW that?

"It's from Boom Boom Pow. The Black Eyed Peas. I like"

But....but...that song is on the radio NOW. It''s...from.....TODAY!

And apparently, I am not. From today. Or supposed to know anything current.

"I'm not a dinosaur, Sweetie."

Mom and Dad were talking about something this afternoon, something silly. Mom laughed when I mentioned Alec Baldwin's SNL skit, Schweaty Balls. She knew what I was talking about and thought it was funny. I could barely believe it.

"If you think that's funny, you've got to see this." I pulled up Alec Baldwin doing an SNL skit about playing Wii on Hulu.

Very little could have surprised me more than seeing Mom and Dad laugh hysterically over that skit. They got it. And they thought it was funny.

Um...guess they're not dinosaurs, either.

I feel like the dinosaur! You three are all way more hip than me!

Funniest thing I have read in a LONG time. Such a "Katie & Jerri" moment! :)

Really want to freak her out?

Next time she calls, greet her with

"What up, G?"

And when you say farewell, use "Peace, yo."

I think I must be a dinosaur too.

Sweet story. I'd have loved it more if I got any of the references. :)
