Story Rating: General Audience
The teenage years are challenging for both parent and child, and most often, time is the best cure for the wounds that these tumultuous years inflict. In my home though, we had a secret weapon. That weapon was laughter -- the best medicine -- and it was truly antidotal, if not at times preventive.
This story tells of a Saturday when at sixteen, my mother and I traded tricks. These tricks caused us to laugh at ourselves and laugh at each other. In fact, we are still laughing.
