Convo: Candyland Gang

with 3 comments

We had just gotten home when a gaggle of girls walked by our house at 2AM. They were loud, as teenagers are, and in their flannel pajamas; swinging by their sides were bags filled to the brim with goodies. They employed a pleasant running chatter, punctuated by laughter and shrieking and “OH MY GOD!” It made me wistful for my teenage days of public pajama-wearing and junk food consumption by the bagful (not to mention faster metabolism and a fear of nothing and slumber parties). It was kind of sweet.

Me: Oh, look at that – they went to 7-11 for junk food in their jammies! That makes me feel so old and happy for them.

Esq: Because they went to a convenience store at two in the morning?

Me: Because they had nothing to do on a Saturday night and will probably get diabetes.

Esq: This is America…
