A snippet of conversation from on the way to church last night, with my eldest daughter and a friend of hers in the car...
Friend: "What about Catcher in the Rye?"
Daughter: "Oh, yeah, we have to read Catcher in the Rye next year.  Hey, Dada - what's that about?"
Me: "A whiny adolescent."
Daughter: "No, really?  What's it about?"
Me: "I told you.  A whiny, complaining adolescent."
Friend: "So... a typical teenager, then?"
Does she have some good friends?

Why, yes.  Yes she does.

Funny, that's pretty much what I thought about it when I _was_ a whiny adolescent. :)
