Never Stop Being (Mutant) Teenagers

| Friendly | May 19, 2014

(My friend and I are both teenage girls. We’re also both big fans of the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ franchise. One day we’re out shopping together, and we find a very childish piece of old TMNT merchandise in the kids’ section of a store. We are surrounded by kids under 10 and their parents. We stand there and stare at the toy.)

Friend: “We’re mature, right?”

Me: “Yeah.”

Friend: “And we earned this money, right?”

Me: “Yeah.”

Friend: “So we should spend it on, like, gas and food. Practical stuff.”

Me: “Of course.”

(We stand there in silence for about a minute.)

Friend: “… We’re both getting one, right?”

Me: “Oh, yeah.”
