What do teen girls do that takes SO long in the bathroom? The universal question! You'd think I'd know. I mean, I WAS a teen-aged girl once, right? But here's the situation – 3 teens, 2 bathrooms, and we always seem to have a traffic jam. Why?? Apparently I'm not allowed to ask. ( Like I don't have security clearance or something?) But I have been collecting clues.
Here's what I know: Knock, Knock, Knock
"Darling sister, have you be chance seen my flat iron? It seems to be missing from my bathroom."
"Why yes, I borrowed it while you were out making dinner at the orphanage. I knew you wouldn't mind"
"Splendid! Thank-you for taking such good care of my property, and returning it in a timely fashion."
Knock, Knock, Knock
Or something close to that. Anyway...
4. We also go through a LOT of hairspray. 3 teen girls, plus 1 mom equals enough hairspray in a week to pretty much crazy glue a man's hard hat to an iron bar. (or whatever that commercial is)
5) When I go into the bathrooms there is NEVER any toilet paper. Not on the roll, nor under the sink. How long have we been living like this? And what the heck? I wonder if it has anything to do with this post from a few days ago.
So, like you, I have reached the only possible conclusion. That's right, as near as I can tell, we are using enough the time and enough supplies to build our own Space Shuttle! I'm naming it the Adolescent.
And THAT's where those washcloths are going! We need towels for the spa room on the Adolescent. (Hey, if it's designed by teen girls there WILL be a spa room!)
And the poor grades we have been seeing in math and science? Obviously a decoy maneuver - you know, purposely trying to throw everyone off.
Somebody Beam me up.
