Conversation at my house today:
12 year old daughter: "What's it called, when people are stuck indoors all winter and they want to get out?"
15 year old son: "Dyslexia?"
Dyslexia = cabin fever. Hmm. This might explain why communicating with teenagers is so difficult. We're using the same language, but the words mean different things.
So when I say = they hear
Please clean the kitchen = play video games
Take out the trash = sit on your brother
Whose sock is this? = yes, you can eat a dozen cookies
Do your math = play video games
Set the table = teach the dog to howl the national anthem
Feed the dog = get on the roof
Put your clothes away = play video games
Where's the remote? = sure, we'll buy you a Corvette
