Attention Nerds!

A social anomaly has crept into our lives while we weren’t looking and has overtaken without our permission.  Attention fellow Nerd Herd members:  there are imposters hiding among us.  Do not despair.  If you look closely, they’re easily detectable and can be drawn out of their hidey-holes with merely a Starbucks Skinny Latte or an irresistibly good sale on designer handbags.

I can feel you imposters looking over your shoulders as you read this.  Beware!  We authentic dorky geeks can spot you a mile away.  Your trendy thick-rimmed eyeglasses, perfectly mismatched wardrobes, and awkward pseudo-nerd-speak scream "FAKE!"

Admittedly, it is rather flattering to us, though.  We really don’t mind the complimentary homage you pay us die-hard geeksters.  But you’re making it a little difficult for us to strive for the ever-unreachable cool factor we’ve had dangling in front of us for so many years.  We’re left a little shaken, floundering in search of the next unattainable goal, but with a boosted ego and slightly pompous self-nerd-love.  

Finally!  The lines have been officially blurred.  NERDS are COOL!  What?  Yes, that’s right!  So go ahead, you jocks and studs and princesses—embrace your inner nerd!  One request, though:  try a little less hard.  You’re making us look bad.  Okay?

p.s.  All rock stars were once 'band geeks', you know.  Think about it.  Just saying…
