Rockstarism #375 – The Meaning Of “Snarky”

#375 You knew someone would ask me for an example, didn't you 🙂 Me: (Reading something random) D'you... by any chance know what a texture pack is? Rockstar: <Not looking up> Yeah... Me: Well? What - Rockstar: A texture pack is something that changes what everything looks like in a game. Me: Dude. Rockstar: <Still not looking up> Whart... Me: How do you know that. Rockstar: Everyone knows that. Me: I didn't know that. Rockstar: Everyone. Knows that. Me: Snob. Where did you learn that? Coding camp? School? Rockstar: <rolls eyes> No. Me: One of your gadzillion Minecraft books? Oh, I know, Youtube? Rockstar: <rolls eyes> Uh, n-o. Me: Then where - Rockstar: I know what the word "texture" means. Me: But apparently not what the word "snarky" means. Or what the word "humble" means. Rockstar: This is why I said it must be true you're a girl because you're pretty mean and girls are pretty mean. Me: How could I possibly be having this conversation with my 7.5 year old child? Rockstar: Whart... Ppffff...  Me: Suitable punishment, please. Rockstar: <barely hesitating> More math. Just don't cut my Youtube. Please.  Me: It doesn't even feel to you like a "punishment" anymore!! Rockstar: Yeah! Me: You are missing the concept of "punishment". "Punishment" is meant as a deterrent. Rockstar: Yeah!!

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.
