(*With apologies to the movie......)
Conversation at the skating rink....
Friend: Hey Jake, what kind of Nintendo did you get for Christmas?
Jake: Huh? I didn't get a Nintendo.
Friend: You're kidding me, right? Everyone gets a Nintendo at Christmas.
(in these parts Ipods, cell phones, and video game systems were the hot thing for 11-13 year olds)
Jake: I don't like Nintendos....I'd probably just take it apart, anyway.
Friend: Oh. So what did you get?
Jake: This way awesome Chemistry set where I can do all sorts of experiments.
Friend: You really ARE a nerd, aren't you?
In the car on the way home....
Mom: You know what you can say next time?
Mom: Bill Gates was a nerd too. I'm sure people don't think that now that he's a billionaire, do they?
