Mother never ceases to surprise me, in both good ways and bad.
This is the story of one of the bad ways.
After improv tonight, we went out for drinks to catch up since Montreal and I finally had an opportunity to tell her all about Danny! How we met, what we’ve done, etc. etc.
I expected her to be happy that I’m seeing someone (I think she’s secretly frightened I’m going to turn into an old maid)…but she WASN’T!
Not that she was upset or anything, just…not supportive whatsoever! And it’s TOTALLY because he’s a nerd! WHAT!!
My theory is that after Mark (who’s also a nerd), Mother’s turned off of anyone who likes “those outer space shows” or, pretty much, anything cool. Disappointing! She was on such an upswing with Mark compared to her usual crop of money-grubbing muscly manly-men.
But the real cherry on top was when she said that “all nerd-boys are babies and don’t want to grow up.”
I’ve definitely known nerdy guys who are super immature – but it wasn’t because they were nerds. They were just immature guys!! So blaming nerdiness for that – WRONG.
