Five on Friday: Teens Say the Darndest Things

I realize I've been complaining about the teens a lot, but since I find stuff like this on the regular:

 . . . you can hardly blame me.

I thought it'd only be fair to also share the ways they've charmed me lately with the cute and funny things they've said (apparently toddlers haven't got the market cornered on that one!)

1. I was having an early morning argument discussion with my 13-year-old daughter over whether "I haven't ate" or "I haven't eaten" was correct. She finally told me that "I haven't eaten" just isn't the vibe.

There was no eye rolling and I was pleased with the movie the 17-year-old chose: Pixar's Monsters University.

    "It's 'cuz they got that high quality wax!"

(Yes I texted them even though we were in the same house, doesn't everyone do that?) I then put my phone down and went to brush my teeth and read. I didn't realize until the next morning I got this from the 15-year-old:
