Responsible adult

The Crone’s son called this evening. As before, he and the hottie made it to Itchy Ankle before the snow storm and so are as snug as two bugs in one rug at the Crone’s home. She, in case you haven’t worked it out, is marooned in the Nation’s capital. The Crone, a couple of minutes into the conversation, started to talk about things to eat from the freezer, the need not to pump up the central heating too high, and the extreme importance of not driving before the roads are safe. “Wait a minute” said Hansel ” I’m the one calling to check on you” This was the second time in two days where the boot seemed to have worked its way to the other foot. It’s nice to know they care, but it does make the Crone feel awfully old.

    Once those tables have turned, there is no turning back. May I suggest that you really enjoy your new teenage years?
