I couldn't believe it.. last night I went next door to borrow some hedge clippers, and the 13 year old boy answered the door with a beer in one hand, and big cigar in the other.
I asked... Is your mother home? He flicked the ash of the cigar on the carpet and said.. What do you think?
OK.. so it's not a true story. Anyone that knows me would have known immediately that I don't know what hedge clippers are for..
My mother and I were enjoying dinner in a Chinese restaurant. The table across from us held 4 teenage girls and one teenage boy. They ordered a fancy appetizer that is served on wooden skewers with a small gel flame in the center for presentation. The kids were setting the skewers on fire. Being a grumpy old 30 something, I complained to my mom. Her response was, "you were the same way when you were their age."
Right after that, one of the girls shouts, "oh my god, if my mother found my book on witchcraft she'd get rid of all my Marilyn Manson CD's". I smiled and told my mother, "I was NEVER like that!"
