In the Land of Teenager: Another True Story


She bursts through the door after school breathless with excitement!

Girlchild said: “Mom! It’s Ok if I go to the game tonight right?”

She proceeds to explain to me the so and so is on her way over to pick her up for the game because and I quote “She is already in the neighborhood picking somebody else up!”

Mom said: “Who is this person and how old is she?”

Girlchild said: “She is a friend from Orchestra, she is sixteen and she has been driving for a LONG time.”

I feel so much better….NOT

Mom said: “I'm not comfortable with you getting in the car with a person who I have never met, not to mention you springing this on me at the last minute!”

Girlchild said: “Mom! (eye rolling for emphasis!) you’re always uncomfortable about stuff like this!”


more talking, more whining, more parental admonitions all the while she is hastily getting ready to go…

Girlchild said: “Mom will you at least talk to so and so…..”


more talking, more questions…..


Mom said: “ What time does the game start?”

Girlchild said: “7:30…”

Mom said; “If the game does not start until 7:30 why are they coming to pick you up now (it’s 2:45) ? (the jury is still leaning towards the negative for her getting in the car with a strange teenager)

Girlchild said: “Oh we were just going to hang out!'”

Mom said: “Hang out where?”

Girlchild said: “Oh we are going to so and so’s boyfriends house!”



Can y’all guess what my answer was………….


That would be a BIG NO!

Needless to say she was a bit miffed, but not to fear I will be taking her to the game and then another mom will be bringing her back home!
