Validation: Twenty Years later.  
By now, most of you are aware at the (sometimes painful) level of dorkiness I possess. It ranges from full blown nerd to a vague sort of social awkwardness. Don't get me wrong; I totally own it. Dorky and proud, that's me. But every now and then, there is a little redemption in what a goober I am. This time, it came from one of my kiddos.

(Carrie and the children are in the car, heading to the theatre for a work call. A car passes, and Aaron pipes up.)

Aaron. Oooh. Did you see that car?

. Yeah, that was a Trans Am. The cool kids drove those back when I was in high school.

Aaron. Were you cool in high school, Mom?

Carrie. (laughs) No. No, I was not.

(Aaron is silent for a moment as he considers this.)

Aaron. Well, you should have been.

It makes up for the fact that I was (and still am) a huge goober, when one of my kids thinks I'm cool.

And they will, for about three more weeks, until the truth dawns on them.

I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.

I adore that kid of yours. He is simply too cute for his own good. *g*

I love you Carrie. Dorkiness and all. You rock. I'd say I want to be you when I grow up but I think I'm already older than you. (not quite grown up yet though ...)

I think it's pretty horrifying that the 'cool kids' at your school drove Trans Ams. ICK.

But your son is right - you totally should have been cool. I would have thought you were cool. *nods firmly*

In four more weeks they will still think you're the coolest, and pass that, I guarantee you.
