“Bam!” The door has just, yet again, shut in my face.
This is not a metaphor. The door literally just shut in my face.
I was out with my children. And, as kids usually do, my son ran ahead, eager to lead the way. But, just as quickly as he barged through a door ahead of us, he hardly glanced back as he let the door shut in my face.
We’ve all been through it.
We bristle and wonder how we’re managing to raise our children to be so thoughtless and rude. To become the very type of person we don’t want them to be.
