Normal People like Pokemon too?!

So, today begins the first day of Spring Break for me. On this lazy Friday I took all my final exams for this semester and first period I naturally, in Drama class, decided to get on the computer and browse some Pokemon forums. This time someone creeped up on me and said:
"What are you looking at? Pokemon?
And then I'm all like:
This guy then picks up on my embarrassment and goes and tells two other of my classmates and then I'm like "fuck, fuck, fuck" because my policy when it comes to the real world and things like Pokemon has always been "deny, deny, deny" so all three of them come over. And I remain seated and am all......
....on the inside. So once they have swaggered on over here. One of them utters, one of the more popular ones....
"Are you watching Pokemon?"
"Look, if I like Pokemon, I like Pokemon." I suddenly decide to go all white-knight because I'm not taking anyone's shit for loving Pokemon.
"I don't care if you watch Pokemon, I watch cartoons everyday."
"They still make Pokemon games?" another says.
"Oh, yeah, they're coming out with a new Pokemon Game soon that just got announced, I'm actually getting it for my DS. the first one, picking up on my unnerved demeanor, says and turns to me and all like.
"He watches Pokemon?" the third one said and turns to me. "Pokemon Black & White? I watch that every morning before school, the one with Oshawott!"
And I'm all like:
All three continue there conversation and I remain silent.
"He's not watching Pokemon."
"Nah, he looks like he's surfing one of the forums."
"I remember Pokemon, back during the time where they had Charmander."
"I be watching Adventure Time, Regular Show, though they're not as good as Beyblade."
"You know the best thing, Yu-Gi-Oh ZeXal."
"Yu-Gi-Oh's just weird."
"No real shit, Yu-Gi-Oh is cool though."
"You know Iris's Excadrill from Pokemon is like the strongest of the main Pokemon."
"Thought that was Pikachu?"
"Pikachu got beat up by Excadrill though."
"Whatever happened to Misty and them?"
"Dawn and Iris are better."
"Cilan's just weird."
So they walk away continuing their conversation of fandoms back to their clique and inner circle of populars and my jaw and dropped at first and then I'm like:
Moral of today's blog, maybe I jumped the gun on my peers. Maybe they're mature enough to not be asses about nerdy things.
