I said, "O, you know how it is, I'm just a dork."

Shoes said, "You can't say dork. You just dated yourself."

I said, "What am I supposed to say?"

Shoes said, "Not dork."

I said to the ladies in my office, "Can I not say dork anymore?"

They said, "Mmm. Not so much."

Rachel said, "That's for our generation."

I said, "I'm 31."

She said, "Right."

I said, "What am I supposed to say?"

Amber said, "(Edited)."

I said, "I can't say that. Can I just say 'nerd'?"

Amber said, "No."

I thought, 'So, on top of my graduate school courseload, soon have to find an apartment, my partner lives almost 5 hours away, my job is crazy, things I have to worry about, I now have to worry about my vernacular dating me?'

And if that lady at Safeway doesn't start carding me for my red wine, I am going to have one holy fit.

Which will really date me.

    You're so funny. I say Dork all the time. So what if it dates you....it's who you are. Our parents say the weirdest things that were popular phrases in their "day 'n age". I think Shoe's is a dork for makin you work extra hard to stay up with the lingo of the now generation. You've got too many other things to do. (you can tell him I said so)....or I can call him a dork whenever I see him (meet him).

    And the next time you are in Safeway you should hand the lady your ID whether she wants it or not.
