Kids These Days


Yesterday, Betty and I headed down to the beach for the day with a few others from her Girl Scout troop.  As we were leaving the boardwalk after a fun (but exhausting, and scorching hot) day of pizza and amusements, a car full of rowdy (and most likely) inebriated individuals passed by.

"I wanna dance with someboddddddddeeeeeeeeeeee!" one of the shiny happy people inside sang, off-key, and hanging out the back window.  

Betty, who is 8, rolled her eyes.

"Kids these days," she said.

Give her 15 yrs and see if she's hanging out a window down the shore, singing her little heart out! LOL Those were the days!!

That's what I was thinking, Lori ... I wanted to freeze that moment so she could replay it at such a moment.
