Sunday regurgitation for 3/22/09: I survived shopping with a teenager

For those of you wondering why Sunday is throwing up, fear not. Sunday Regurgitation occurs every Sunday, when I link to a prior post of mine, because I am trapped under something heavy and am unable to write anything original or riveting. Hopefully someone will notice I’m missing, remove whatever is suffocating me and I’ll be back to normal by tomorrow. But just in case this doesn’t happen, think of me fondly.


I took Zoe shopping yesterday.

For three hours.

She’s fifteen.

That means she’s a teenager.

And she’s a girl, which makes her a female teenager.

Which means I went shopping with a female teenager for three hours.

Without any kind of narcotics whatsoever. Or liquor.

Three hours.

That’s like a nanosecond in teenage years.

And something like OH MY GOD, SOMEBODY SHOOT ME in mom years.

I’m putting in for combat pay and ten weeks of vacation.

While I’m filling out the paperwork, I’ll leave you with this post I wrote last year:  Lack of communication a/k/a shopping with a teenager.

    Is it bad that my shopping experiences with Bella are already like this?? And she’s only 4! Should I just shoot myself in the head now?

    BTW, I hope you don’t mind but I borrowed your Sunday Regurgitation theme today (love how I’m asking you AFTER the fact??) I did give you props with some link love so hopefully that makes up for the stealing!

    I felt your pain – double fold. See with 2 girls 3 years apart I did 2 teens girls shopping at one time … with nothing less than totally different tastes. It would take me days to recoup from the ordeal – thank goodness for extra large margaritas!

    7 daughters/step-daughters, all of them teens. One 11 year old.

    One of the step-daughters said to me this weekend as we went shopping, “At least you have better taste than my mom.”
