The Wonder Years

I chaperoned a party last night for a bunch of high-schoolers. Me versus too many of them, at times they seemed to be multiplying like gremlins – I lie to you not. The thing that sticks out in my mind is that teenagers are the same across the years. They are defiant, (sometimes) deceptive and (at times) incredibly obnoxious. They are always at the ready to push a boundary or ten and they can't wait to grow up.

I have to admit that today, I am tired. I have never been more aware that I am 31 than I am at this moment because teenagers wear you out.
