At Large Kids of Today
posted by December 25 at 13:03 PMon
I’m visiting my brother and his family in Norfolk, VA—a well-timed trip in regard to my current obsession with Clipse (I haven’t seen them around anywhere) and a welcome reconnection with my brother’s kids, AKA my niece and nephew.
Sarah just turned 16 and is obsessed with punk. (For her birthday, I gave her a signed copy of Courtney Love’s diaries, and she wept in appreciation.) If her idolization of Courtney Love isn’t scary enough, her celebrity dream date du jour is Pete Doherty. (“He’s beautiful!” she says while swooning; next up: crushes on open sores.)
Jake is 12 and loves skateboarding and the Clash. Five minutes ago, he said this about the movie Scarface: “He crams his face in a huge pile of coke, and most people who do that aren’t very happy.”
