I know, right? If you're the parent of a teenager, you know exactly what he's talking about. Which is why I choose to do a preemptive strike and explain to my kids that I'm not telling them these things because I'm stupid, I'm telling them because it's in my job description.
There are times when I think it must have been horrible to have Laman and Lemuel as older brothers. But then I try looking at things from their point of view -- I don't know if I could stand having a little brother who was always calling me to repentance, nagging me to read the scriptures and making me help build some stupid boat.
I remember the year I turned 16, I thought my whole world was going to change! It didn't; things pretty much stayed the same. It's sort of like that with the new year -- the only thing that really changes is the date.
I've been cartooning since I was a teenager, and have been published in magazines ranging from AASHTO Quarterly to the LDS Church magazines and several other periodicals, trade publications and newsletters.
