People are always preaching that the truth will set you free. Well, here is the bottom-line God’s honest truth when it comes to teenagers. There is no “Men are from Mars”. There is no “Women are from Venus”. There is only Planet Teen. Put away the petty conceit that teen boys and teen girls are sooooo different. They are walking the same planet, breathing the same air, and wreaking the same havoc.
So, for Monday Listicles, here’s the thing that makes us go hmmmmm about teens:
Why does it take so long to get ready in the morning?
Here’s the photographic evidence that proves our point.
Shazam! Hair this good does not happen by accident.
So they aren’t taking the time to hang them up or put them in the hamper. So maybe the minutes are ticking away as they decide which one to use. Or maybe they are just staring into the linen closet trying to conjure up a clean one.
Could you find anything in under 15 minutes in here??
Whether lined up for emphasis or left in their natural state, that’s a lot of shoes. Choices like that could take hours.
This is where everything is: the flute, the left soccer cleat, and the cover sheet to that book report. If only you could find this elusive black hole, you could shave 30 minutes off of your morning.
So you see, XX or XY things aren’t so dramatically different; they are really just equally frustrating. This list could go on forever because there is no limit to the things that make you go hmmm on Planet Teen, but we are keeping it short for Stasha on Monday Listicles this week. That should make everyone go hooray!
