Those lovely teen years

Editor’s note: The following letter was addressed to Aspen Times columnist Roger Marolt.

Dear Editor:

Your recent column “A catcher in the wry” struck a chord with me. Might be because my husband and I are neck-deep in raising teenagers! My 90-year-old mother chuckles and says, “It’s payback time.”

Thanks, Mom, for sitting on me and pinning my shoulders to the floor to keep me from going to that party in high school after you had grounded me! I simmered down and loved you that much more for doing it!

Hold tight, all you parents of teenagers out there!

Pat Bingham
