“Where you goin’”?
“I can see that. Where.”?
“Let me know when you get there.”
“Call me at nine, if you’re not home.”
“Good grief. Find one.”
P.S. “Love you” (sigh)

Sounds like a dialogue with a rebellious teen ager. I sense the frustration and tension in this piece.

I (vaguely) remember these conversations with my own mom and DEF remember them with my daughters. Of course, now I (quietly) snicker when they have these conv. with THEIR own teens.

I fondly remember these and other conversations with my son…luckily, before he grew out of them,
I realized it was a teenage “phase”. It does marvel me to hear similar conversations to this day…
at Walmart today I heard what sounded like the teen end of a similar conversation on the phone as he
walked by !

I swear you are the mother of teenagers

not any more, but those days are hard wired in my brain I think ! Not always so funny then,
but now, sometimes a laugh out loud !
I was telling of the conversation like this years ago, and a church member turned to me and said,
“usually he was at my house when you didn’t know where he was and he’d call at 9 pm ” !

So, completely safe but determined to let you worry

Always the interrogation before going out! It’s like it’s a crime (:

Either you’re a parent or you have one! Sounds remotely familiar. Well done.

wouldn’t have tried this with mine ☺

I think I’ve had this conversation…

I see this as a mom to a teenage son (boys are famous for one-word answers)
February 2, 2013 at 7:15 pm
This would have been a HUGE conversation for my son as a teen ! A “grunt” would have been it !
Thanks for the comment !
February 2, 2013 at 8:24 pm
Thank you…I had enough words to say for both of us ! He still is a man of few words ! Pleasantly quiet,
just speaks when he has something to say…not a chatterbox at home anyway !

Were you talking to my teenager? lol
February 2, 2013 at 8:27 pm
thanks for following my blog.
I see by the responses, I might have been ! Looking back, I didn’t see the humor in our exchanges,
but now they are are fond memories and I smile at the past encounters with my son.
Thank you for your comment.

Oh dear…sounds like me!
February 2, 2013 at 8:29 pm
I guess that is a common mode of speech for teen boys !
He was the first teen boy I had constant dealings with…
I had left home to go to nursing school when my brother was a teen.
thanks for the comment,

Ah, the excuses people come up with. I love the blandness and disrespect of the tone given here.
February 2, 2013 at 8:31 pm
Actually, it would have been a huge conversation for us…
my son is a person of few words…the conversation was probably, grunts, eye rolls and raised eyebrows from him…the later two would cause more conversation on my part !
