Top Four Reasons I'm the Coolest Mom in the World: #4
Okay, seriously, my thirteen year old daughter told me how cool the kids at school think I am, so I was trying to figure out why. Why am I the coolest mom ever? What is it about me that appeals to teenagers.
This comment was made on Halloween, so my # 4 is this: When the teenagers come to our door, we don't give them the little tiny candies you get in the 10 pound bags. We give them full size candy bars.
You should see their faces when I hand them a big Milky Way or 3 Musketeers. They light up. They become children again, forgetting all their teenage problems. Okay, maybe that's a bit melodramatic, but they do love it.
So, if you ever want to get in the good graces of the teens in your neighborhood, give them big candy bars on Halloween.
Hell, I wonder what they'd think of me if I handed out the King Size.
