No Flashing!

My daughter and her best friend are quite a pair. Dae and Franny are two of the funniest and brightest teenage girls I know and they are never short of zany situations.

Last year for Darienne’s birthday Jeff and I took both Darienne and Franny to Dae’s favorite Chinese food restaurant. They were taking pictures of themselves throughout the time we were together as Facebooking teens are prone to do.

After we ate and were back in the car Darienne took a picture of them while they were in the back seat. Jeff said, “Ladies, please don’t use the flash in the car it reflects off the rear view and blinds me.”

The following day they went to see Panic! At The Disco with my mother. When they jumped the car and started on the highway Darienne asks:

“Grandma, can we flash in the car?”

My mother wasn’t thinking flashbulbs and nearly crashed the car.
