Losing Mom Points. Again.

The other day I was scrolling through Grammy pictures and I came across this guy.

Killian (looking over my shoulder): Wow. Electronica at the Grammys?

Me: Oh, do you listen to Deadmau5 (pronouncing it like it looked)

Killian: (dead silence, then finally...) This is my face. This is my palm. They're meeting. (facepalming and slowly shaking his head)

Me: Deadmouse, huh?

Killian: Uh, yeah.

Me: I'm assuming I just lost major points for that pronunciation faux pas.

Killian: Almost all of them.

Me: Sigh... For the record, numbers don't belong in names. Just sayin'.

Killian: Whatever. You still fail.

Ha! I lost all of my mom cool when I pronounced Katy Perry's name as "Catty Perry." I had never heard it pronounced and was just going by the spelling.

The cool thing about having a kid with Aspergers is, when I lose mom points they're for stuff that would actually make me more uncool to know. See also: anything having to do with Minecraft.

I would've done the same thing. :)

Don't feel bad, I didn't know who half the "artists" were on that show. My question is, when did a DJ get to be an artist????

I thought it was 'dead mouse 5' also. Guess we're getting old?
