I admit it, I’m obsessed. About what, you ask?
Uhhh…”The Great Schlep.”
Uhhh…. “That One.”
Uhhh… “Hockey Moms.”
Since when did hockey moms become such a large block of the mommy population? I’m surprised that the Ultimate Mommy Stereotype has gone from “soccer mom” (minivan, suburbs, middle-class, what-have-you…) to “hockey mom” (uhhh, what attributes go with that?I guess I’m not tapped in to this new cultural zeitgeist, seeing as I live down south and all) without comment — but I’m sure I can google the words together and discover that it really hasn’t. *
And that is why I’m obsessed.
Current Politics — more engrossing than fiction.
But on a more serious note: Last night, halfway through the presidential debate, I realized something. As far as this neighborhood went, while the debate was going on, you could hear a pin drop. There was not a single car on the road.
*See this. Apparently “hockey mom” was parsed about a month ago. I’m really not in tune with the cultural zeitgeist.
