Teenager Speak

Dear Son,

This was a conversation I had with you the other day:

You: Mom, do you have some chapstick?

Me: Do you need it now or would you like one for school?

You (with complete indignation): It’s for me!

Does anyone understand how that answer is at all an appropriate response to my question?  Apparently I was supposed to understand that his answer meant he wanted to bring chapstick to school. I know that you’ve all experienced this same thing, but do any of you remember having this problem with your parents? I know they weren’t big fans of a lot of our music but that is not the same issue.

If anyone has the code to teenager speak, I’d love to have you chime in and reveal the secret to the rest of us.

For Now and Always, I Love You,
