Emancipate This!

For a time at my 15 year old daughter's high school, the 'cool' thing to do was get on anti-depressants. Now, the latest cool thing to do is get emancipated. Of course, my daughter wants to do it. I told her that it seemed like when I was a teen that the only kids that got emancipated were named Tammy and that girls who do yoga are not usually good candidates for emancipation.

Upon coming to terms with the fact that I would not support the whole emancipation thing, she closes the conversation by saying, "Fine. I'll just be emancipated in my own head then!"
