In the car, Fortran 5's "Persian Blues" [ YouTube ] came on the CD rotation. the_child cocked an ear, and the following conversation ensued.

the_child:"I didn't know you liked music like this. I thought you only liked guitars and stuff."
jaylake:"I'm a lot cooler than you think I am."
the_child:"I hadn't noticed that, really."

We did our version of that dance yesterday
Self: "hey, K, Look what came in the mail today!" (proudly showing off my new set of blood tipped fangs)
K: "Um, yea, OK then, mom" (looking at me with that look reserved by straight laced moms for their goth children)
Self: "But look how cool they are!" (trying to save this one and failing miserably)
K: "Un-huh. So - is dinner gonna be soon?" (continued funny look)

At 13, this should be an interesting next few years :>.

I want The Child's baby, though saying that is probably ensuring that you never let me see her again.
