Let me start by saying that I actually do love my kids. All of them. Most of the time. Okay, all of the time. But some days . . . Well, some days, I don’t really like them. Some days I want to place an ad that reads like this:
For Sale! One Slightly Used 14-Year-Old!
Serious inquiries only please.
Interested parties, should inquire within.
No warranties,refunds, or exchanges.
Due to the many requests I’ve had regarding a trade: No thank you; I’m really not interested in trading my slightly used, attitude-riddled teen for one of your slightly used, attitude-riddled teens since that sort of defeats my purpose, but thank you anyway.
