Nerds are born, not created. I have never sat through a. Star Wars b. Lord of the Rings c. The Matrix.
And yet, my kids can recite every creepy nerd fact from all of them. And they have friends. Lots of them. Cute friends. They're getting together to watch the trilogy of "Lord of the Rings" IN COSTUME!!! before the new Hobbit comes out.
I did not even know there was a Hobbit coming out. I did know "Lord of the Rings" Lego was coming out. I've known it since it got leaked. Because nerds aren't good with secrets. (I mean, you've heard about the new iPhone am I right?)
In fact, I think nerds are the worst gossips out there. So my son has been saving money in droves for this new Lego. If you've never collected Legos, and I'm going to assume you haven't because I think this highly of you, then you don't know that for the good Lego mini figures, you have to buy the best sets. In other words, you're not going to get the best Darth Vadar in the $19 set. There are different mini-figures, but the prime ones come in the $79 to $129 sets. You can cheat and say, buy the Death Star, but this is apparently frowned upon.
My point is, for those of you who read "What a Girl Wants" you know that I did not create my kids to be like the Reasons, right? This just happened! (Although I'm happy to report, the nerd girls they hang out with, are lovely.) If you can't beat em, join em.
Now I'm off to watch "American Ninja Warrior." Sigh.
