Single Parenting during Christmas: Sometimes it’s Like…

the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights
Being the lone chaperone at a frat party in Finland where you’re responsible for everyone’s health and well-being but no one seems to understand a word you’re saying and there’s a secret room where they’re taking Red Bull shots spiked with sugar and you can’t let them outside to burn off their excess energy because they’ll freeze their fruitcake (although, tempting...) so you tolerate them running around the place speaking some strange language while periodically fighting because they can and because there’s no bouncer or backup chaperone or police officer or security guard or spare adult authority in the entire joint.  

It’s just you out-numbered by them and enough energy to power the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney World. 

The End.
