When she/he was good, she/he was very, very, good...
But when she/he was bad, she/he was horrid.
On Saturday night the two of them sat on the couch together... as the Angsty Teen was perusing Pinterest.
I'd only had a little wine... so, that was unfortunate...
The Stern German (SG), who is totally exemplifies functionality... not creativity or stylishness... was commenting to the Angsty Teen (AT)...
SG: Who's that?
AT: It's Usher.
SG: What's that mean?
SG: What is that?
AT: He's a singer, rapper dude... He's not a church usher...
SG: What's that guy wearing?
AT: That guy?
SG: Yeah, his pants are red!
AT: They are straight-legged jeans... colorful one.
SG: His pants are short. His jacket is too tight. He looks stupid.
AT: He's a hipster.
SG: A what?
AT: A hipster...
This is what the Angsty Teen tweeted at that point:
SG: What is that guy wearing?
AT: What? Purple shoes, purple belt, black jeans....
SG: Oh, you've got to be kidding me.
AT: Wouldn't you wear that?
SG: I'm not gay.
SG: What are you supposed to glean from looking at this?
SG: What's with the kilt?
SG: Is there anything on here for men?
AT: Cars and motorcycles... does that make you happy?
SG: Where's the hunting stuff?
AT: Oh, they've got an outdoor section.
So the Angsty Teen clicks on the "Outdoor" tab.
SG: Outdoor... decorating??? That's ridiculous.
SG: What's that?
SG: It's a gun...Woohoo!
SG: This thing is more for women.
SG: I don't think much of preppers.
AT: What's a "prepper"?
(I'm looking sadly at my empty wine glass... wondering if he means "preppies"?)
SG: Someone who stores up stuff for the end of the world.
(Pretty sure that even though people do that... that "prepper" isn't a real word.
The Angsty Teen gives it one more try to convince her dad that Pinterest is great...
AT: What about that guy?
SG: Ooooohhh... look at that... what'd they do? Seasoned a cast iron pan! (He was genuinely impressed!)
SG: Pancakes? Ooooohhh.... that's interesting... (and he really thought it was!)
SG: What's that? Click on it... I want to see, I want to see.... "Do It Yourself Firestarters"!
By this point, even though he was starting to not hate Pinterest, the Angsty Teen was pretty annoyed with the Stern German... I just wanted them out of the living room and/or I wanted a(nother) full glass of wine. Okay... that's a lie... no "and/or"... just "and"... (Hey, Kati... bet you wish you'd been here!)
SG: Are you ready for me to go away?
The Stern German leaves the room... Clearly, she should've tried that tactic a long time ago...
