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.
