torturing the teen

teen: “Can I spend the day at the park with my boyfriend?”
me: “The park? That sounds like fun. We’ll bring your little brothers and sister and make a day of it.”
tip-tap sounds of texting on phone
teen: “We changed our minds. We’re just gonna hang out at the mall.”
me: “The mall? We haven’t taken the family to the mall in ages. Won’t you be glad to have your boyfriend along to help watch the little people?”
