"21st Century Problems: The Return of the Surrogate Father (#15)"
I’m not going to lie. RightSaid Fred1991 a.k.a. “Me” has been laying low and avoiding gaming because I am not sure how to keep dodging FishEater2013 a.k.a Ben’s want for me to attend his parent appreciation at his Junior High School. I mean this is already a touchy line making friends with a 12-yeard old through PS3 online-gaming. Woah, I didn’t mean to use the word “touchy”. Now this conversation is awkward. What if I’m being set up for one of those To Catch a Predator epsisodes? Right? I am no fool I saw the 1st episode of the 1st Season of Degrassi: The New Generation where Emma got lured into a hotel room with a pedophile. Except I feel like the roles are reversed. I feel like Emma. I feel violated. What should I do? I mean what kind of home situation is this kid going through that he is reaching out to a complete stranger to his act as his parent? I’m afraid to keeping ignoring him. What if he gets depressed or something and goes and gets a gun and goes and shoots up his school. I mean is that crazy of me to be worried about these things kinds of problems in the 21st Century (ooooh title drop…clever eh?). I mean I live in Louisiana. Do you know how easy it is to obtain a gun here? I mean I love my guns don't get me wrong. I am just a bit nervous about the wrong person getting one like Miley Cyrus, Ricky Martin, or Barbara Walters. I have 7 guns. One for each day of the week. But Don't hate. I am sane. That's my right. But the last thing I want to do is to be the catalyst for some depressed kid taking out his problems on his peers or teachers. #WWJBD (What Would Justin Bieber Do?)
