Hey, Look

The New Yorker is one of the most highly respected and well-known journals published in the United States, having been around since 1925.  This month’s issue includes the following piece by Simon Rich in the Humor section.  It starts with the words, “What I imagined the people around me were saying when I was Eleven” and goes through age 16.  Following is an excerpt:

“Hey, look, that thirteen-year-old is walking around with his mom!”

“Where?”

“There—in front of the supermarket!”

“Oh, my God! That kid is way too old to be hanging out with his mom. Even though I’ve never met him, I can tell he’s a complete loser.”

To read the entire piece, go here, or visit the front page of the New Yorker here.
