As Parented On TV

| IN, USA | Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters, Teenagers

(My parents are watching TV. My sisters and I – all of us in our teens – are in the room, but doing other things. An anti-smoking PSA comes on.)

Announcer: “…so talk to your kids about not smoking.”

Mom: *loudly* “Kids, don’t smoke!”

Us: *in chorus, without looking up* “Okay!”

Mom: “Glad that’s taken care of.”
