Last month I posted some pics of the family in a sea of bluebonnets (a Texas tradition). My oldest, at least when I reviewed the pics from the file, did not appear to have posed in the flowers.
I was wrong.
TEEN: Dad! When you posted the pics of our family and the bluebonnets, why didn’t you put my picture up?
DAD: Because you didn’t get down on the ground in the bluebonnets.
TEEN: Yes I did! (Teen then finds file, finds pic.)
DAD: Fine. I’ll put you up solo on my blog. (Thinking she would protest.)
TEEN: Good! You’d better!
DAD: What? Should I leave your phone number, too?
TEEN: (Who is responding to me but looking at her friend while talking) – No thanks, I don’t need any Creepers.
TEEN: (To friend) – He doesn’t live in this century.
DAD: Keep it up and you won’t live in this century.
Anyway … as you were.
