Today, I gained new respect for my mom. Most of the time, I think of my mom as a total square. After all, she was born before the hula hoop was invented. But occasionally, she has a moment that makes me think she’s actually pretty cool. Much like when she told me she saw Springsteen at the Stone Pony in the 70s when she was going to Rutgers. That earned her a solid 750 cool points with me.
Now, admittedly, she’s a few days behind, as this news is two weeks old, but this morning, I got the following IM from my mom:
Mom: Michael Bolton doing Sinatra. It is soooo wrong.
Thank you, mom, for putting into such simple words something we were all thinking. 50 cool points for your insight, plus an extra 20 for making it over IM. And an extra 5 for not “signing” your IM.
If only the words “no-talent ass clown” had been in there somewhere.
