    and no! It's not in the ceiling fan.....[​IMG]

    But seriously, my bestie just said something through a text message and all of those screw ups seem worth it.

    I'll pretty much quote her, minus abbreviations.

    You know what. I'm tired of all this. My rents *parents* keep thinking I do all of this for nothing...

    (my reply) Mkay, you lost me.... let me guess. Grounded for the dance?

    No. They are just PO'd. They just don't understand my... Intellect! What good is heaven if you haven't been through hell.

    (me) ?...

    You don't know how good sugar is 'till you've swallowed salt

    For some reason that made sense. I guess you can't tell how good your life is until you've messed up and been in the trough's of life.

    But we parents have been through hell & are in no mood for more!
    Do your Hell raisin' on your own time.
    Sample your salt LATER.

    If not... oh no [​IMG]

    what they said. times about 50.

    seems like unappreciated intellect must be the serious issue, especially with all of the colorful language.

    Wow I must be getting old because I have NO clue what in the world that text message even meant - comprehension just went WHOOSH [​IMG]


    I'm just going to say parents house - parents rules. You kids will figure out that life is much much harder when you're out on your own, soon enough. Grass always looks greener - until you cross the pasture [​IMG]

    Why would a person knowingly screw up just to "experience life"?

    The consequences of screwing up are still felt YEARS after the screw-ups happen. One bad decision could ruin a person's entire life; who would want to make a poor choice on purpose?

    Of course, teens often live for the moment and don't think about the repercussions of their actions still reverberating 10 or 20 years down the road...

    Those of us who are older have watched friends from high school make mistakes and end up poorly equipped for the challenges in life...it's very sad.
