Teenagers are sprawled about my house like a Clearasil commercial.
I am playing the "cool mom" role , making hamburgers & brownies while getting earstrain trying to hear what's being said.
Everyone is enthusiastic about the promised burgers.
I come out to offer the brownie bowl to be licked.
They all glare at me as though I have suggested something completely off the wall!
Hurt, I retreat back to the kitchen.
When did they get too cool to lick brownie bowls?
later, I mentioned I had chocolate on my jeans.
"chocolate!", they all demanded as one,"where's the chocolate?"
"I made brownies, I asked you if you wanted to lick the bowl"
"oh", they chorused, "we thought you meant the hamburger bowl!"
