Guest Post by M.R. Tain
I was inspired to write "This isn't Normal" by three things: First, it was the stories our sons brought home from high school, and the contrast to my own high school experience.
Second, the memories of my teenage brothers back when I was in grade school; the music they listened to and their activities. Third, a picture of my mother in law at the age of 16. For the first time, I saw the teenage girl that would become the 60 year old woman that was my mother in law. The picture of the carefree sixteen year old girl showed me that we don't really know older people.
