I’m sitting on the couch, flipping through Tumblr on my laptop while my mum sits next to me playing Bookworm on her laptop. Now to put things into perspective, my mum’s not all that technologically or modernly savvy. Granted, she’s made me proud by recognizing an Ocarina of Time song before my video game expert buddies, and she quotes Star Wars fluently, but there are still some things she’s not not up to date on yet - certain styles, Internet memes, jokes, and other things that usually circulate Reddit, Tumblr, and Facebook - that’s when she is either disinterested, or just doesn’t get it.
She turns to me and says, “You know what would be cool, Jo? We should try making steampunk Christmas stockings…you know, with gears and clocks and stuff decorating it.”
I seriously have the coolest mum in the world. Any argument against this is invalid.
