I Get So Emotional, Baby!

Mom, you’re emo.

Do what?

You know, an emo…an emotional.

How do you figure?

Your music.

Really!

Yeah. You have two songs by Death Cab for Cutie on your iPod.

So?

They are very emo. Especially that song “I Will Follow You Into the Dark.”

I happen to think it’s very romantic.

I also found some My Chemical Romance.

That’s a bad sign, huh.

‘fraid so.

Isn’t emo just goth lite?

No.

But I don’t have black shaggy hair and dress all in black or paint my nails black or my lips black or line my eyes in black. And I have been accused of being pale, but I don’t think my skin has reached pasty yet.

It’s not all in the way you look.

Well you know, I do love to sing “Cancer” at the top of my lungs. It’s such a cheerful pick me up on a gloomy day.

I’m very worried you’re going to start cutting, Ma.

Well, it’s like this. You know how I love parades, right?

Uh, yeah?

Well, that My Chemical Romance song “Welcome to the Black Parade” is all about marching bands!

Huh?

That song. It’s about marching bands.

(pause)

I take it back.
You’re not emo.
