Conversation with a Teenager

We went to a family barbecue on Saturday for July 24th (Pioneer Day for those of you not in the know, and most likely not in Utah). While I was lazing around waiting for the steak to be cooked, I struck up a conversation with my 15 year old niece. Before judging, please note that I wasn't fishing but mostly trying to tease her and the conversation ended up being too interesting to just quit on.

Me: So, who's your favorite aunt?

E: Uh... I don't know. (with an are-you-crazy? look)

Me: Oh, comeon, you know you have one. Who is it?

E: Er.... that's not a very nice thing to say.

Me: It's okay. I won't tell anyone. Who?

E: Uh........................................... I guess I'd have to say...... Ben.

*blink blink*


Me: Yeah.... Ben's an Uncle....

E: Oh... yeah.

Me: So.. who's your favorite AUNT??

E: Um.... my Mom?

*sigh...*

I think she quite likes to be contrary, and to act bored, and to exhibit disdain for all adults. Stereotypical teenager.

:D

I think teenagers disengage their brains to limit the amount of damage caused by adults... :)
