The Real Thing

Eler Beth will turn 14 very soon, and yesterday she and I were talking about how fast it's coming up.

"I'll be a REAL teenager then," she said

"Being thirteen isn't being a REAL teenager?" I asked

"No, it's kind of like . . . ," she thought a minute. "It's kind of like a teenager with training wheels."

ROFL, well I suppose in many ways that is true. And then nothing makes you feel more like a real teen than turning 16 and getting a license. And although 18 is supposed to make you an adult, (and it used to sort of) now with restrictions until 21 it leaves you hanging for a few years.

I hate it when kids are smarter than I am. Which is often, btw.
