Teenagers-my reward for surviving toilet training

This afternoon-
Me- Are you mocking me?
The Giant- Is there an honest answer to that question that won’t get me in trouble?
Me- Probably not.
The Giant- OK, then how about one that might preserve my dignity?
The Ginger- Don’t be stupid. Dignity is for families a lot less weird than ours. Try for self respect. You’ll probably still fall short, but it’s a more appropriate goal. (During this entire interjection, the Ginger never breaks pose–fast forwarding through the musical guest on the SNL recording)
The Giant- um, Mom, I love you? (Awkward one handed hug where I tuck neatly into his armpit)


About peik

What's to say? I'm a chronic fun seeker and life marrow sucker. I live in an ancient brick house in a darling town with my perfect and tolerant husband, my two amazing teenagers (The Giant and The Ginger) and two blue Danes (Oliver and Periwinkle). A lover of obscure roadside attractions and museums of oddity, I travel, write, laugh, make friends, write letters, sometimes run, eat great food and drink good whiskey. I've never had a bad journey and every single day is my grandest adventure.
