Giddiness


I tell you, we really are getting a bit goofy at this point.

The other night when Mike got home from work we decided on a whim to go through the virtual snowdrifts of gifts, toys and hand-me-dows of various sorts that have been accumulating in Flynn's room.

We pulled of tags, folded tiny jumpers, dusted off dolls, stocked bookshelves.

After that we were, as you can see, a little high on our parenting hormones. So we did a little happy dance.

I did tell you we were dorks.

Since when is being in love, dancing, laughing and being goofy qualify as being a "dork"?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dork is a term used to describe someone who has unusual interests and is, at times, silly or stupid. A dork can also refer to someone who acts on his own motives without caring about his peers' opinions. The term occasionally implies stupidity, though perhaps less often than it once did, and it can paradoxically imply an unadmirable (bookish, academic) intelligence, much like the terms "nerd" and "geek."

It is popularly asserted that the term originated as whalers' occupational slang for the penis of a whale (oosik), and by transfer became an anatomical insult, undergoing subsequent generalization and amelioration to its present meaning. One of the earliest documented uses of the word "dork" is a 1961 publication (referencing 1953), in which the meaning is clearly penis in reference with the whales[1]. In its current most common usage, however, the phallic association is ignored and the term is not considered particularly vulgar.The adjectival form of dork is dorky, a word that was mainstream enough by 1971 to appear in a Peanuts comic strip.[2]

So there, you are not being dorks or "oosiks". You are definately not stupid! Giddy, yes, maybe...but you bear no resemblance to a whale's penis.

OK, I can't comment on the whale's penis thing ;) but: unusual interests,check. Silly, check. Act on our own motives without caring what our peers think? Check. Bookish, academic? Check, check.
... I still think the word suits us!
