overheard yesterday while taking out the trash

my neighborhood is OVERRUN with emo freaks who are obsessed with SXSW. it's extremely entertaining to watch, and even more entertaining when you overhear the following conversation while making a trash stop on your way out for an after-work run:

emo dude #1: "dude, you weigh WHAT?!"
emo dude #2: "i weigh 114 pounds."
emo dude #1: "dude, you only weigh 114 pounds?!"
emo dude #2: "yeah, so what?"
emo dude #1: "dude, i weigh 154 pounds! that's like a difference of..."

silence
silence
silence

emo dude #1: "dude, that's a difference of like, 50 pounds!"

aww, emo dude #1. you were so close. SO close!! better luck next time. also, just FYI: skinny-fit plaid pants, faded band t-shirts and wristlets do NOT look good on you. neither do aviator sunglasses.

Am I a total geek for not knowing what an "emo" guy is?

I am assuming he's a modern day hippie, but can't be certain. A little help here!

*hangs head in almost-shame*

hi, Em:

here is the Wiki entry for "emo" as a slang term:

and, of course, urbandictionary.com, because I love them:

hope that helps!!
