A few weeks ago, I was excited and happy because I knew something that Peanut didn’t. Lately she has been a true teenage monster, so any bit of happiness I can scrape up when she’s around I cherish!!!!
Tonight she was asked to go Back to School shopping with a friend. I had found some gift cards buried in the junk drawer and told her to call and check the balance since they had been in there awhile.
She yells downstairs: OMG MOM!!!!
OMG IS THERE A POUND SIGN??????
I asked What? again because I thought I heard her wrong. Everyone knows what a pound sign is!
OMG!!!! A POUND SIGN???? WHAT’S THAT?????
Me: Oh, the tic-tac-toe game thingy.
Silence. So apparently teenaged everyones don’t know what a pound sign is.
Me: The hashtag!!!!!! (thinking DUH! and rolling my eyes for good measure and cracking myself up too.)
OMG! YEAH I SEE IT NOW!!!!
Bonus happiness because she didn’t ask me how I know that since I’m old. I was so happy I didn’t even care she didn’t say thank you. Mention it and go back to normal dealing with a teenage monster or ignore it and enjoy knowing something she didn’t. Hmmm. It was not a hard decision!
