Rock Star Mom

There’s a mom who drops off her two kids at my son’s school every morning, always waves and smiles, friendly-type. She’s a flamboyant soul, with big furs and make-up, jewellry everywhere (especially big hoop earrings), and swishing around everywhere she goes. Rock star Mom. Fun.

I’ve had occasion to talk to her once last year, and that was enough for me, though. Whatever innocuous thing we were talking about, probably school-related, became her ranting about the government and what a dickhead Stephen Harper is… I remember thinking whoa… he may be a dickhead, but how did we get here? And so quickly? It was tiring.

Anyway, this morning. She came barreling in the driveway like usual, but today the music was blaring. I mean, loud enough to be heard clearly outside her SUV as though the windows were down (they weren’t). When they opened the doors to get out, it got spectacularly loud. It turned everyone’s heads because, of course, she drove right up front and wedged in front of everyone else. Remember, this is 08:30 in the morning, most people are still waiting for their first coffee to kick in. Most people are just weary and bleary from having to wrestle their kids into snowsuits and out the door. No one else blasts their tunes in the morning, like that. Not even close.

And the tune? Black Sabbath’s The Wizard. CRANKED. Which is, of course, the only way to play Sabbath.

I have to think that that can’t be doing her kids’ ears any favours. But it is thoughtful of her to be giving the kids an education before they get to school. Rock star Mom!

  1. There are people in this world where to them the rules don’t apply. I have seen them in action. I am fascinated by them, because I tend to be pretty rule-bound.


    • I’m with you on that one. I am well aware that it’s often better to ask forgiveness than permission, but it must have been my upbringing. I am usually pretty sensitive of the people around me. My inner punk wants to kick my ass.


  2. Never talking….just keep walking …..spreading her Magic…..The Wizard!


  3. That’s cool that she loves the good tunage. But yeah, don’t start talking politics to me if I don’t even know you from Adam. No thanks. Start with something more innocuous. “Nice weather” works. So does, “How about the Leafs?” Or just a simple, “You’re so hot and sexy, LeBrain.”


    • Haha I’m sure you get all the time. Yeah, she’s a special piece of work. Most folks dropping off their kids are groggy and in a rush to get to work themselves. This one steams in and makes full show of it. All that was missing was the pot smoke cloud billowing out when she opened her door.
