My 16 year old can't find her cellphone. It's lost...in her room or on the couch. She is panicking and hyperventilating. "It's gone, now I don't have a phone." Well, you had it less than an hour ago, and you haven't left the house, so it's not really gone is it? "Yes it is. I've looked everywhere." So, she rants and raves at me and the poor boyfriend for the next 15 minutes.
Then the boyfriend finds the phone in the shoe closet on the floor. She had dropped it on top of a shoe while she was getting another pair. Teenage girls, what else is there to say...if there is no drama we'll have to create some.
