darned adults!

Are you an adult?

If you are, and you've ever caught yourself thinking "darned teenagers" in any situation, you should stop by auralidayne and read some of her recent posts.

It will serve as a nice reminder. Of several things, actually. How little people change in essentials from adolescence to adulthood. That odd semi-defensiveness that characterizes your opinions at a certain age. And, most importantly, that most teenagers are simply slightly younger adults. Yes, they (and you, at one point) have done and will do things that seem silly in the process of defining themselves, but they're generally reasonable people who will likely become even more interesting as they learn more. Not the monsters adults tend to make them out to be.

Ahem. So, before I launch into a rousing rendition of "Teenagers, Kick Our Butts", go have a meaningful conversation with someone several years younger than yourself. One that does not involve patronizingly telling that person how smart s/he is.
