Conversations with the Teen: Camping

Teen Boy (storming around): WHERE’S THE WATERPROOF MAP?
Me: I don’t know, I’m not in charge of this operation.
Teen Boy: (Storms off to bedroom)
Me: (a bit later) Have you found it?
Teen Boy: No.
Me: (Locates it in TWO SECONDS) Is it this?
Teen Boy: (sighs) Yes.
Me: (Hits him with it) TWO SECONDS! It took me TWO SECONDS.
Teen Boy: Nothing is truly lost until Mom can’t find it.
Me: You got that right.
Teen Boy: (walking out) We should take you to find Atlantis, (in a mom voice) “TWO SECONDS! It only took TWO SECONDS!”
