Teenagers….

It’s cold outside.  Maybe not as cold as this photo because I took this picture in Canada, but it’s cold.  The thermometer in my car said 6 degrees.  The thermometer at the bank said 3.  Either way you slice it, it’s cold.  Really effing cold (sorry mom).

I picked the princess up at school today because she was supposed to have a riding lesson.  Wandering aimlessly in front of my car was a boy with no coat on.  Seriously?  No coat?  It is six degrees outside!  Or three!  Then I saw a girl wearing flip flops!  Flip flops!  Now I never would have worn flip flops when it was six degrees out.  Or three.  Of course part of the reason for that is my high school did not even allow sandals.  Never mind flip flops.

Now, I remember high school (I’m not that old).  I remember not wearing a hat because it would mess up my hair.  I remember not zipping up my coat so it wouldn’t cover up my outfit.  But I never would have gone without a coat.  I don’t know if I was just more sensible or just that much of a wuss.  But really, no coat?  That’s crazy talk.
