My daughter Chelsea is in Terminal Bac S, (a senior in high school.) I asked her how her day went and she said, "Since I was early for my Greek class, I leaned against the wall and started to re-read my physic lesson, when a bunch of girls came running down the hall, very late for their class next door. Laughing hysterically, in their hands they each had a cell phone, or a nail file, or a tube of lipstick, none of them had a back pack...one had a i-pod, they are fashion (the popular well-dressed crowd.)......."
Before Chelsea could finish telling me about those girls, I asked her if she was considered, "a nerd?"
"No duh Mom."
"Gee, Chelsea, I was voted, "Most Goofy," when I was in school. I didn't carry a backpack, nor a tube of lipstick."
"Boys." I said while popping my bubble gum.
She rolled her eyes at me, I winked...and drove us home.
Different birds of a feather flock together....the eggs in my nest are cracking, I am missing her already.
