The dinner time discussion had turned to recounting events throughout the day.
“Ebony wants to know when she will hit adulthood so the pimples will go away” Jazz explained. Her younger sister had queried the process of becoming an adult, wondering when the lingering pubescent trait would finally disappear leaving her skin clear.
“I don’t know if I will ever grow up” Kris replied with a shrug.
“I just wish I would grow up already” responded Jazz. She was studying to become a doctor, a lengthy process which would see at least eight years of study, prac and stress that she would rather have behind her already.
The girls shrugged off the momentary concern and continued to joke about the small things that lingered from their teen years. They still watched cartoons both new and old, purchased comical shirts and collectables from stores, and still had that spark that lit their minds with creative flare.
The news broadcast on the television that the Glad brand of cling-wrap the girls had once used was returning to its old packaging making it easier to use.
“I can’t believe this is news” remarked Charlie shaking his head. The girls instantly defended the segment.
“Are you kidding!?” exclaimed Jazz. “They moved the cutter to a different spot on the box that made it impossible to rip off the glad wrap without it breaking off uneven and sticking to everything it shouldn’t!”
“But how is this news?” replied Charlie.
“Well we started trying different brands of cling-wrap when we didn’t like the modified packaging, so now it has gone back to being convenient, consumers will be happy again and we will probably get that brand again as well” Kris explained.
Charlie shrugged and finished with a last ditch comment that it still didn’t make it news worthy material.
It later occurred to Kris when she recounted this discussion that they had in fact already, grown up.
