An observation

I notice that teenagers seem to think a sweater is sufficient against a torrential downpour. They are wrong, of course. I do not understand why they do not have raincoats or umbrellas or why their parents think cotton is somehow a deterrent to rain.

This got me thinking about myself as a teenager. I used to wear flip flops in all weather, including rain. But I always carried an umbrella or wore a raincoat. 

My unscientific conclusion is that teenagers remain a separate species from adult humans and have different environmental tolerance levels than the rest of us.
