Don't Look at Me in That Tone of Voice

A few months back, The Teenager was telling me a story about something that had happened to her at a fast food restaurant and, while I can't recall the exact conversation, it included a bit of information that I found suspicious. When I asked her to clarify the point, The Teenager gave me a look that clearly stated "I am telling you this again only to patronize you, you feeble-minded old woman".

I have been the recipient of That Look numerous times since and, while I suppose I should be insulted; it never fails to crack me up, instead. Maybe I am feeble-minded.

Ya think?


  1. Kids need to be careful though. We all know what they have coming - they're going to turn into US in 10 or 20 years and Karma will be paying them back!

  2. I thought about that the other day with Elizabeth, I wonder when she will think, wow, that was just like mom. ha ha
