Teenagers are stupid.
I was coming back from the shop earlier this morning when who do I spy but the Little Goth Kid and one of her equally gothy friends bippity bopping down the road on thier way to school. Well they weren't really bippity bopping, they were shivering as they scuttled along because today is somewhat gloomy and a bit cold.
'Where's your jacket?" I asked her when we stopped for a meet and greet.
'Back home.' She said, trembling.
'Why don't you wear it then? It's cold today.'
'Er...right. all the better to warm you then.'
'NO no,' she said shaking her newly blonde hair, 'it's massive.'
'Yes, but your lips are going blue.' I look at her friend, same attire, school uniform, socks pulled up to thier knees, no coat. She too is shivering.
'Okily dokily,' I said and wished them good day.
It was like last week when I was heading into town with the paramour and we spied another teenager, standing at the bus stop wearing track suit botttoms, ballet pumps, tiny vest with little tiny cardi over it. She had her arms folded across her chest and she was rattling away too.
She made me cold just looking at her.
Wait util Winter really kicks in.
