A Conversation with a Teenager *

Teenager: "Mumble...mumble...mumble..."

Parental Unit: "What?"

Teenager: "Never mind..."

Parental Unit: "No really, what?"

Teenager: "Nothing..."

Parental Unit: "Seriously, I want to hear what you said?"

Teenager: "It doesn't matter..."

Parental Unit: "What. Did. You. Say?"

Teenager: "I forgot."

Parental Unit: *sigh*

*This poem is based on a fictitious conversation with a fictitious teenager and does not resemble the conversations I have with the teenager I live with...
