For all of you suffering the teen years!

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished

to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up.

Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow.

It was addressed, "Dad." With the worst premonition, he opened

the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands.


Dear Dad,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing to you.

I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and

you.

I've been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I

knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercings, tattoos, her

tight Motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am.

But it's not only the passion, Dad.

She's pregnant.

Stacy said that we can be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods,

and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of

having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana

doesn't, really hurt anyone.We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people

in the commune, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want.

In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better.

She sure deserves it!

Don't worry Dad, I'm 15, and I know how to take care of myself.

Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can get to know your

many grandchildren.


Love, your son,

John.

P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. I just

wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school

report that's on my desk. I love you!

Call when it is safe for me to come home

As the father of a 16 year old boy who almost daily asks simple questions like "What's the point of life" and an 11 year old daughter who refers to too many older boys as "cute" this rings too true...

My daughter loves to point out that she was a better kid than her peers..

I like to point out that had her peers been my children , she wouldnt have been better behaved than they were.

( Thank god those years are over..I'm too tired now )
