It’s late, you’ve just arrived home from work, you’re tired and hungry. All you want to do is eat dinner and relax. Problem is that you can’t because there is a teenager in your house. You can’t quite remember when they arrived as they have a habit of creeping up on you and blending in to the furniture. It’s only when they start to smell or grumble at you for changing the TV channel that you realise they’re even there.
The teenager is camped in front of the TV, been there since sometime in the afternoon or instantly appearing there when the school bell rings. It’s under a blanket, or more precisely “a rag” since that is what it has now become under the constant use of the teenager. There is something on the TV, something teenagers find fascinating, and that you may have when you were that age but you’re grown up and have to force yourself not to laugh.
