So the Teenager is jumping last night and starts screeching.
"I can feel my heartbeat!"
"Excellent! That means you are alive!"
"You know hundreds of people have heart attacks every week."
"Yes I know that. Keep jumping. You are not having a heart attack."
"I'm sweating! I'm sweating!" Said in the same tone of voice one would say, "I'm bleeding! I'm bleeding!"
"Good! That means that you are having a good workout."
'ACK! ACK! ITCH! I always start itching when I jump."
"Really? I don't think there is any documentation to substantiate that exercising causes itching but if you like I will Google it for you. After you are done jumping."

Woot! Woot, Teenager!
I am so relieved that she is forgiving and moves on quickly from the unpleasantness of jumping. This morning she was happy indeed and informed me, "the moon visited me last night!" I inquired about the statement and she told me that she woke up to "the beautiful full moon shining through in my bedroom."
I am glad that I have someone like The Teenager to remind me of things I constantly ignore like the wonder of a full moon.
