What do you give a teenage boy to whip him into a frenzy?
Beer that cannot be detected on the breath by the sharp nosed parent?
A one on one with the cheerleaders of the national rugby team?
An ability to study whilst listening to their Ipod, texting their friends and Facebooking – oh no of course, according to teenwolf they can do that.
A pizza the size of a sports stadium?
Some ‘`how to get the ladyeeeez to`LOVE you’ tips from Jayzee?
Yes to one or all of the above.
One thing that will not however get them into a frenzy, is the package I took home today.
As you can see it looks rather intriguing. It was as teenwolf undid the tags on the side and as it burst into it’s upright glory .it resembled one of those cloth tunnels he had as a 3 year old from IKEA which he spent many hours climbing through.
‘God Mum it’s not a tunnel is it?
‘You’re joking! ‘
‘Oh…well ‘, he muttered as he looked in a bemused fashion into the very belly of the cloth beast as it stood on it’s end.
‘Well what is it?’
‘Ok sit down,’ he sat down ‘this is an alien concept, an implement which will stun and confuse you’.
A nervous tick emerged as he watched me suspiciously.
‘It is a …’
Pause for effect
For once I had his full attention
‘A receptacle into which you put your dirty laundry.’
‘Oh’ instant and extreme disinterest is now displayed.
‘Anything that is dirty that does not go in here, will not be washed.’
He gave me that ‘och Mum I know how much you love me this is bound to a temporary arrangement’ grin.
I gave him the evil eye.
‘ I mean it.’
So off he went to do his homework. AKA Sit in front of the computer, facebooking his pals, strumming the guitar, texting, listening to his Ipod – oh but only after spreading his school books on the kitchen table so when I walk in he can quick as a flash sit in front of them and look studious. I shall post an update in 24 hours…what do you think the odds are of anything being in it?
