    Really!


    Admittedly, the story is really about something else. But when I read that sentence I choked on my afternoon coffee. People under 21, including high school kids, are having house parties! They are wearing mini-skirts! They consume alcoholic beverages! The horror, the scandal! How can such a thing be happening?!?

    I hate to inform you that it was happening 20 years ago, too. And when my mom was a teenager too. I know, I know, its hard to believe. We all grew up to be drunken prostitutes, of course.

    Note, I am not condoning that behavior (and I didn't really engage in it until I was over eighteen, if under 21 and I don't think it ever involved a miniskirt). But "hard-hitting reporting"? Really? Is it even news?

    Erm... Sometimes I wear mini skirts. In fact, I have a really cute khaki one I cannot wait to pull out when the sun shows its face in May-June. The kicker? My mom bought it for me ;)

    I must be destined for prostitution :yikes:

    Well, it would be a crime for ME to wear a miniskirt, I can tell you that much. Nobody needs to see that much of my thighs.

    But I wouldn't call that a hard-hitting news report.

    Hahahaha. I actually read something one of my dad's friends wrote in his yearbook about the apparently awesome wild beer parties he threw in his parents' absence. My dad insisted at the time that he never drank at them. Bullpoopy I say. :D
