Have you ever thought that teenagers have a lot in common with cats?
It all makes sense when you think about it, because:
Neither teenagers nor cats turn their heads when you call them by name.
No matter what you do for them, it is never enough. Indeed, all humane efforts are barely adequate to compensate for the privilege of waiting on them hand and foot.
You rarely see a cat walking outside of the house with an adult human being and it can be safely said that no teenager in his or her right mind wants to be seen in public with his or her parents.
Cats and teenagers can lie on the living room sofa for hours on end without moving, barely breathing.
Cats have nine lives. Teenagers carry on as if they did.
Now do you see what I mean? Are (or were) your teenagers just like that, or did you get lucky? Or unlucky…
