My Brilliant Little Geek, Part 2

April 17, 2010
  • Time: Tonight, 8:02 p.m.
  • Place: Weather Station 1, also known as the 70s rec room
  • Movie: Catch That Kid, starring Bella Swan, Jennifer Beals, some kid from High School Musical and Drew Carey’s cross-dressing brother.

My son Tarzan, 6, spots my Nerd Herdles satchel for the first time. He’s very observant, and reads beyond his age, but the typeface confuses him.

  • T: “Is that a Star Trek bag?”
  • Me: “No, it’s a Nerd Hurdles bag.”
  • T: “What are nerds?”
  • Me: “It’s people who like stuff like comics and superheroes, and computers, and space. You know, like me.”
  • T: “And me.”
  • Me: “Well, sure.”
  • T: “So …. cool people.”

Can’t beat that one,  folks.



  1. Awesome. I enjoyed Catch That Kid quite a bit back in the day.

  2. All together now… one, two, three… AWWWWW!

  3. Yer teachning that kid lies. But at least they’re necessary ones.

  4. Next you need to teach him that ‘the’ is actually spelled ‘teh’.
