So I'm on my nice long ride this morning, and the all-too-familiar carload of teenage boys (cruising in Mom's Volvo station wagon) goes by and starts to slow. I prepare for the inevitable verbal assault as the passenger window rolls down and one of the kids sticks his head out. Here is what I got: "Hey! Get tighter pants!" Get tighter pants? That was the best they could come up with? No "Woo hoo" or "Hey, Baby, you can ride me anytime"? I was a smidge disappointed they couldn't do a little better. The youth of America are slacking off.
