My son is sixteen, and he is scary. He wears vampire teeth around all the time even though they aren’t his real teeth. To make matters worse, he wears a horrible cape over his school clothes. Also, another thing that he does is to wear one of those sweatsuits from like the Gap that looks like a skeleton suit. I keep telling him that tHose are for much younger kids, but he just tells me I’m for  idiots. My son is dark. I mean, he’s twisted. He likes to hang out at the cemetery at night, unlike me. I usually avoid the cemetery – it gives me the creeps! I hope my son ccan be saved from this scary fate. I love you Michael!
