Top 20 Tips for a Better Relationship with Your Teen #19 by Rowena Starling
Top 20 Tips for a Better Relationship with Your Teen #19 is ‘Share funny stories of your life with them. Laugh with them often’. Really great if it’s a story from your teen years.
One of my funny stories is from my high school years. It was the Spring Festival and I was a star ballerina in a skit that was rehearsed as a serious, beautiful, spring movement. My partner was one of our star football players, one well accustomed to performing before crowds of people.
We rehearsed for weeks. Finally got it perfect…lifts and all. Day of the performance…on stage…he FROZE! I was running up to and into him expecting him to lift me, twirl me, regal me. Get a picture of me running to fling myself at him repeatedly and he’s frozen in place like a statue!
Every time I ran to the sidestage, I’d could be seen flailing hysterically at the Director, begging her to make him MOVE! I was distressed but the audience thought it was hysterically FUNNY! People thought it was HILARIOUS!
I wonder to this day if it was a setup…that the Director told him to freeze… The more I think about it the more I think…maybe…
Tell me one of your funny stories!
