This morning I said to my 16-year-old (a.k.a. SIXTEEN), "Do you want to read my essay? It's running in the New York Times today!!!"
HIM: Is that the one I read the other day?
HIM: Did you change anything?
ME: No. But it's in the Times!!!
HIM: In the actual paper?
ME: Well, no. It's online.
HIM: Mom. I read it already.
In case you're even slightly more interested than SIXTEEN, here it is: (!!!!)
The Seven Words I Cannot Say (Around My Children)
As always, thank you so much for reading.
