I was chatting with my landlords about Thanksgiving plans this evening and remembered a Thanksgiving story I shared with them. A friend of mine was at Thanksgiving dinner with parents, grandparents, etc and they went around the table sharing what they were thankful for. My friend, in addition to being rebellious, was sexually active at a rather young age. She, at the age of 15 or 16, told the entire family she was thankful for birth control.
I’ll bet that really changed the atmosphere of that particular family gathering.
