Honestly, I Am Pathetic

It seemed like a good idea at the time.
So, that flu-like virus I had Saturday was mercifully short-lived.  In fact, it departed just in time for me to come down with something else -- some virus that kept me up last night feeling as though I was going to have to revisit all that guacamole I had downed at a neighbor's Super Bowl party.

The bright side is that this should be very helpful in my latest weight-loss endeavors.

So Larry had to come home from work yet again to find me lying on the couch, looking like hell.  And the house looks even worse.  Luckily, my teen knows how to cook.  I'll give myself a pat on the back for that, at least.

I spent the day dozing, ordering the kids around, and surfing blogs.  That's how I ran across the following kneeslapper at First Things (courtesy of a link at Conversion Diaries):

...adolescents are fully capable of cognitive and moral reasoning, maintaining long-term relationships, and being responsible for themselves...

Tell me - why is it that other folks always come up with the funniest lines?

  1. I've known one adolescent who qualified on all counts, but I'm pretty sure she is an exception to the rule.

    Hey, at least your teen can cook! How does he do with homemade chicken soup?

    1. Unfortunately, it's the vegetarian. I'll have to stick with the canned variety.

  2. Maybe the quote is talking about adolescent bonobo chimps.

    Food poisoning? I hope it is gone fast. You've done enough redecorating lately - you don't need to redo the walls in guacamole.

    1. Hmmm...maybe THAT was the color Larry was searching for.

  3. Oh how miserable! And guacamole no less!

  4. Just because a teen is capable of doing something, does not mean they will do it. ;)
