Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Dude looks like a lady

One of the best things to come from our Disney World vacation has been Hot Rod's new affinity for Aerosmith. I love it.

On Saturday night, I got to go out to dinner with LabKat and hang out for a bit. While at dinner, we noticed my glass had a chip in it. We couldn't find our waitress, so we told the teenaged host. As we were leaving, he looks at us and says: "Dude, did you find your waitress to tell her about the glass?"


I looked at LabKat once we were outside and said "Did he just call me dude?" Yep, she responds with a smile.

Now, she and I have been mistaken for life partners before, but never for men.

I weep for our future, to quote the snooty maitre'd from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

    One of my good friends and writing buddies calls me "dude" all the time. She's ten years younger than me (I'm mid-40's) and she works as a graphic designer. Yes, I said SHE. I think it's just part of how they talk where she works, and it carries over to her personal life.

    A woman Craig works with (mid-to late 30's) does this too...she's in the corporate world though and says "dude" for anything and everything. I've only been around her in social situations, but hopefully she doesn't do this with the client!

    Well, I say Dude alot, too, especially to the boys or as an exclamation ... but I don't use it when I'm talking to chicks. *rolling my eyes*
