I Love Teenage Logic!



Yesterday, my fifteen year old son went out. Voluntarily.This is an unparalleled event in my household, brought about only by a major power cut, which meant he was unable to use his laptop! To play a game that he has explained in huge detail to me, over several hours, and about which I am still none the wiser. I dont do games of the video or P.C. variety, although I am a cut throat bitch when it comes to Monopoly. My boys did try to initiate me in the ways of Xbox and Playstation, but gave up after a wasted day of watching me try, in vain, to get Shrek through a gate, and having to physically wrestle the fake instrument from my hand as I failed miserably at Guitar Hero!
Deciding to take advantage of a rare situation, I asked him to take out the rubbish as well.
“But I am meeting Josh.”
“Yes, and you have to walk past the bin housing to get there.”
Cue deep sigh, and rolling of eyes, and the best damn answer I have heard in a long while.
“Mother! That’s like saying ‘Oh, you are flying to Tehran? Could you solve the Iraq conflict, it’s on your way?'”!!!
Teenage logic at its best!

  1. Our boys must be related! Yesterday Scott answered yes ma’am to everything I said…I thought it was so nice, until I figured out what he was doing…


  2. I enjoyed this very much. I have and still do play games like the ones your son plays so I chuckled at the strip as I can relate. I’m glad you liked my post on the blogger assignment site because that way I found you! I shall love looking around and reading.
