When I was a teenager, I assumed that if I ever had kids I would follow whatever teenage trends were cool. I thought I'd tight roll my acid-wash jeans and crank Dire Straights in my Jeep Wrangler. Now I recognize that most things teenagers do are pretty lame. Teenagers have it rough. It's an awkward age, and no one really likes them, even themselves. But now there's a trend among teens that I think I could get into. They wear shorts, short-sleeve shirts, and flip-flops all winter. They can't be bothered to wear warm clothes when it's cold out. If I had teenage kids, I'd pop the collar on my Polo shirt and wade through snowdrifts in my sandals. We'd just have to hope our Jeep Wrangler never slid off the road and and got stuck in a snowbank.
