There was a time when I would discuss things like celebrity gossip and awesome summer shoes with my BFFs. We would send links. Links to breaking gossip, links to great shoes, links to reviews of new cool restaurants in town.
The most recent link I received in a group email with the BFFs was a link to a list of the best parks in the area.
And I got excited about it. I book marked it. Then the next day I loaded the two kids up into the car and drove 25 minutes to one of the parks listed.
TWENTY FIVE MINUTES.
Even though I can walk to a park in my hood.
And then I told some other friends at preschool about the link. And about the park I drove too.
And then I realized – this is f’ing pathetic. We are all excited about it. We are all talking about it. And no, it’s not about Angie and Brad or summer espadrilles. I don’t even know what’s going on in those areas anymore. It is parks. WE aren’t cool. This includes you too.
But see, it doesn’t end there. The kinds of things we discuss doesn’t just stop there.
And I am caught up in the visual aspect of one of the things we’ve discussed lately.
See, one KT BFF realized one day that there are lots of people out there who look like Little People. You know, the Fisher Price Little People. Don’t pretend like you haven’t noticed that the guy at the gas station looks remarkably similar to the dude driving your kids Little People bus.
It’s a Little People world, kittens.
They are EVERYWHERE.
Many even have those same dumb smiles pasted on their faces.
It can make even the mom in the worst mood of all times, laugh, on occasion.
So keep an eye out, and you’ll start spotting them. EVERYWHERE
And in the meantime, just ‘fess up, the links you are sending probably aren’t that cool anymore either.
