Teens are not too cool…

I found this little gem recently on my old blog:

{dated April 3, 2009}

So, remember when you were a teenager and you’d be in public with your parents, which you secretly didn’t mind, but you didn’t want the world to know? And remember how you’d act like you were too cool for your parents if you saw a member of the other gender and you’d say something loud enough to your parents so that person knew you were too cool?

Well, about a week ago, I witnessed one of the greatest examples of this act…ever!

I was at the grocery store. I had stopped to search for my desired item. And, of course, the teenager and her mom turn the corner. This girl was frizzy-haired and pimply, not that there’s anything wrong with that…maybe there is. Back to the story…

The girl sees me right when her mom asks her a question. At this moment, the girl has to decide, in a matter of milliseconds, how she will respond and this is how it went down:

mom: hey, do you need any salt and pepper or anything?

girl: (looks at me then back at her mom, lowering an eyebrow) mom! i’ve never used salt and pepper in my life!

Salt and pepper?! Never? In your life??? I had to laugh and I immediately wrote the whole thing down on my grocery list. If it had been, sayyy, baking soda, that might have been alright. But salt and pepper??? Come on! Teens are NOT too cool…

    Had I tried that with my mom she would have slapped my face around to the back of my stupid head.
