If I had a twitter account, I would send a tweet right now that suggests my 17-year-old daughter is actually a 70-year-old woman in disguise. She just turned the TV to the Golden Girls and is laughing at it. I didn't like that show even when it was new, and I'm much closer to their age now. Still not funny.

I used to like that show, but not so much anymore.

Adolescence -- who thought that was a good plan? Spencer forgot his pencil pouch with his calculator and all his writing utensils the other morning. I was going to the school anyway so I dropped it off.
"Don't do that again," he warned. Sorry that I was actually useful. You're on your own now, Bub!

Sheila -- I had fun too. You're right, I wouldn't have to read your tweet.
