I don't have trees near me. Urban living y'know, not much wildlife other than the hookers.
No, today I get to explain what a n00b is and why I happen to sometimes be one.
(Internet slang, pejorative) A newb or newbie; refers to the idea that someone is new to a game, concept, or idea; implying a lack of experience. Also, in some areas the word noob can mean someone is obsessed with things.
So remember my post from last week about my mom?
I was so happy I got to show her how much I love her, and sent her the link to check it out.
She wrote me back, here is her reply:
That is most beautiful, just like you. Thank you for the great tribute. I read some of your other alphabetical posts. The one with the Dads made me cry, although happy tears. Only one mistake in the Mom one... Uncle Larry was born in North Bay, not me. I was born at Henderson, just like you and your sister. love you and thank you again for the lovely tribute.
Plus, that information makes things so much cooler!!! My mom was born in the same hospital and my sister and me! Wicked!!! I'm sure not a lot of people can say that....
So hey, being a n00b isn't necessarily a bad thing.
It opened the lines of communication between my mom and I about our geneology. Now I have a craving to know more about my mom's background. I thought I knew it but learned so much already that I know I was wrong.
And that's a good thing.
Will you help a n00b today?
