Sharon Meets Her Inner Nerd

Respect for nerd culture has come a long way in the last three decades. Being a diehard fan of anything outside of the sports realm was once an invitation to be labeled a nerd or geek. Letting ones nerd flag fly caused many adolescents to have miserable high schools experiences. More recently, things have shifted in social society. Nerd is now chic.

People make plans around “The Walking Dead” or “Game of Thrones.” Gaming is an actual profession....

Sharon Meets Fake Pockets

Yesterday, I watched a seven-year-old girl become furious when she realized that she had fake pockets and had no place to carry her fruit snacks. I completely sympathize with her.
