too big for your britches?


I have the most efficient and effective solution. Just hang around a 15-year old, preferably one of your own. Within minutes you will notice that the oxygen you are breathing is completely wasted on yourself. In addition, anything that comes out of your mouth will be treated as the verbiage of a complete idiot, especially if it is an instruction about driving skills to the practicing driver (aka the 15-year old).  Any attempts by you to display affection to your offspring will be met with eye-rolling, and body language shunning, sometimes accompanied with actual physical recoiling on the part of the 15-year old. BOOM! Not so big for your britches anymore, are you?
