This teenager / adult thing I mean.
We had a party at my house this past Saturday.
The partiers came in ages from 21 months to some in their sixties.
Don’t ask who acted more like a child. It was a toss-up.
The thing that I couldn’t understand was the attachment of the teenagers to the adults @$$=S.
There was a pool to swim in. There was a huge den that was dark and had a BIG screen tv complete with more channels than they could ever watch. There was food of the variety that teenagers live on – outside. All of these places were minus the adults.
The adult females planned on sitting in the living room, crocheting and talking. It was supposed to be quiet in the living room. It was supposed to be occupied with only female adults wielding crochet hooks.
The adult females figured the men would be outside bragging, cooking, drinking, scratching, and acting like men.
Wherever the females congregated the men followed. They didn’t engage in conversation with the women. They didn’t even sit with the women. They stood around bragging loudly about whatever, scratching and rearranging, and gossiping about those who were not at the party.
The women tried to ignore them.
When the females sat down to do whatever, the teenagers sat as close to them as they could get.
We tried to get the teenagers to leave.
We tried to pry them loose with temptations of dark rooms, no adults, food and beverages.
They weren’t budging.
We threatened them with hemorrhoid grease applications to our arses so they couldn’t stick.
Ha ha. They could have cared less.
We threatened them with hemorrhoid ointment applications to their heads.
One teenager even laid down on the couch and put her head in her mother’s lap like a baby.
The younger children, who we thought would be the problem, were in the pool. We only heard from them when we dragged them out later in the day.
When I was a teenager we would rather been seen with a giant zit on our face than we caught with our parents? We wanted to be alone, not stuck to our parent’s @$$=$.
So what has happened in the past thirty or so years?
Don’t teenagers still think all adults are stupid?
Don’t teenagers still try to sneak away from adults to do whatever it is teenagers do these days?
Is the new “in thing” teenagers keeping tabs on the adults to make sure they toe the line?
Are the teenagers afraid the adults might have sex?
Or is there some other mysterious reason for the new teenage hemorrhoid attachment?
Clue me in or I’m going to invest in Preparation H stock.
I’ve dealt with too many pains in my ass to now have to deal with teenage hemorrhoids.
