That Moment You Realize You've Lost Paternal Credibility




My son, to me, over my shoulder:

"Are you serious?! Have you lost your mind?! Star Trek?!

"And not just Star Trek... but Star Trek: The Next Generation!

"And not just Star Trek: The Next Generation... but Star Trek: The Next Generation: Behind the Scenes!!

"It's like you've traveled backward in time and channeled your inner nerd!"



Stupid Netflix...

Trust me CJ . . . you're father's nerd is not "inner" but out for the world to see.

In fairness, my mother didn't let us watch the old one because the promoted birth control on an episode. Plus, I think Picard is a little more of thinking captain who does not sleep his way across the universe. Still. as a blogger I read wrote we do have the Kirk Doctrine set forth when he passes judgment on a tyrant. The tyrant's daughter asks Kirk, "Who are you to judge?’ The captain answers, ‘Who do I have to be?’

All I want to know is what shows your son watches. By that we shall judge him-- if we've ever heard of them.

(From one who was an utter Star Trek junkie twenty years ago.)

But I don't watch tv. I'm a homeschooler.
