Powerful words...

I’ve decided that, after 6 years into the teenage girl thing, I have found words that can shake a teenager to the core.

They are not “Get to your room!”, they are not, “You are in big trouble!”, and they are not “You are grounded!”

They are... “Hello, Verizon?”

Yep, that’s right. With one quick call, the phone is dead. It’s the new miracle cure for disrespectfulness. Try it, I guarantee it works! (And, if you're lucky, the operator who takes your call has teenage children of her own, and she'll do it for FREE!!! Yeah. no charge...)

(My head hurts, my back hurts, my eyes are red and my knees are swollen. I'm having the time of my life here in Chicago...more later...)
