My friend Lori has a teenaged daughter exactly the same age as Elizabeth. Well, almost exactly. Lori went and had Krista on Elizabeth's due date and I think, vice versa. Either way, they're both 17.
One's a workaholic and one's normal. Guess which one isn't normal. Yep, mine. The workaholic.
Anyway, this is an excerpt from an email I got from Lori... about her normal teenaged daughter! Lori writes with such candor.
I mentioned today that there is a brand new Me N Eds Pizzeria opening up JUST DOWN THE STREET and they had a sign up that said NOW HIRING!
I told Krista and her response was... a quizical stare and ... "Me N Eds?... where?... (more quizical staring)... what corner?... by which Walgreens?"
I could nearly read her mind... "what me? toss pizzas and clean tables? I think not!"
I threw in an encouraging... "Free cheese pizza!!!!" and her response was "You know I hate Me N Eds pizza" and that was the end of the discussion. (Please watch as I bang my head against the wall several hundred times).
