Meg schools Casey about his incorrect emoji usage (she’s a bit cocky about her knowledge since she’s been on a quest to be a “cool Mom” as she approaches 40 in a few weeks.) Apparently the Gen Z-ers are making fun of us again, this time not for side-parts, but for using the crying laughing emoji (among many others) WRONG. Meg gives Casey a quiz from Buzzfeed to assess his age, determined by which emojis he’s using the most.
Also, Meg faces a tough parenting decision - the 11 year old asked if she could watch the Tiger King documentary. Casey is adamantly against this - Meg feels it could be a great opportunity for interesting human behavior conversations.
Casey initiates a new segment called “On the couch.” He shares a range of emotions he experienced after participating in a pitching clinic with the 11 year-old. Meg provides a therapeutic analysis that leaves Casey reflecting on himself and... on how lucky he is to live with a therapist ;).
