G&G Quickie: Parenting vs. Nerding
This has been on my mind for some time now. And I just need to share with like minded parents, parents-to-be & parents of the future.
Also, if you are one of those cosplaying parents that do matching family cosplay, I commend you. You are #doingitright my friend!
But here goes my rant. LOL.
Cons of being a Geeky Parent:
Less Money for Pull-list Comic runs.
Finding a baby-sitter so you can continue going to Comic-Con. Because the one time that I brought my daughter when she was a baby in a stroller... People are evil. And that is all I have to say about that.
Trying to finding time to work on your Cosplay Ideas
Standing in the 12pm Showing of the opening of the Newest Movie instead of the 12am showing like all the rest of the geek community
Feeling like you’re back living with your parents when you try and sneak and watch your Anime Porn
Can’t spend your weekends drinking wine & reading comic books, all day & all night, with your gay best friend.
Can’t save up for 3 to 6 months to fly out a Comic Con in LA or NY
Buying a new gaming system on a whim at $300 a pop is over, it’s going to take about 3 checks to save up to walk up to that register with confidence
Having to put your collectibles up or even more frightening, putting them away in storage because you have a kid that just won’t take no-no for an answer.
Umm... I am still trying to figure that out. LOL
Do matching family cosplay, i guess. (wink)
