My Mom Is Cool…Top Gun Cool

This might have been the greatest day of my life. My mother, I love her so, and not just because of stories like this. If you sympathize with her, please tell her that her son is a monster in the comments section.

We went to the danger zone!

    Your poor mother-I would be so mad at my kids if they didn’t tell me-and the glasses sound exactly like something I would do. Great video.

      I know. I’d be mad too, and I’m sure I’ll create my share of dumb stories for my son to tell. If my mom really wanted us to stop telling the story, we would. But everyone loves a good story, including her–and this is just too good.

    That’s a great story! Heheh. I got a good chuckle out of it – I could so picture my mother having had a similar experience when I was growing up.

    That was a great story. Just think; one day your kids will have a great story about you to tell.

    Alright young man, This is your mother. The thing is I REALLY AM TOP GUN COOL. I still have those stupid aviator sunglasses, with the dumb lens that pops in and out. I’ve actually told this story on myself. But readers – just know this – it wasn’t actually 7 hours because I couldn’t have gone that long without looking in the mirror to see if I really was still cool. Mom

      Oh crap, the jig is up. Mom, if you settle down, I won’t tell about the time you rolled your head up in the car window while you were backing out of the driveway.

    Mom is top gun cool Josh

  • Your Mother July 1, 2009, 1:45 pm

    Then I would be forced to tell people you used to watch “My Little Pony”

    aviators are cool. now, then, always. And your mom clearly IS Top Gun Cool.

    On a related *but not really* note, have you ever seen Quentin Tarantino’s rant about Top Gun?

    I heart Top Gun. Still.

    ps I plan to steal and use, with no credit to you, the phrase about talking with hands like there are bees in the air.

    • Josh Hanagarne July 2, 2009, 7:38 am

      I am a fair weather Tarantino fan and I’ve never heard the rant. What was the gist?

  • Kathy Casey August 3, 2009, 9:05 am

    OMG! I AM your mother!
    Not feeling as *CHILL* as I was about 15 minutes ago! I hope my children never discover the world of blogging and tell all my stories!

    BTW: Josh’s Mom -I think you are totally cool!
