My friend popped into town last minute yesterday, so we hung out. We decided that hanging out needed to involve some wine, so we trotted down to Rewe to pick up a bottle.
Apparently Rewe is the happenin' place in town, at least for teenagers it is. There was a pack of them, hanging around the front door, eating takeaway Chinese food. They left a pile of cups from their drinks.
I was a teenager once (it's getting farther and farther away!) but it still flummoxed me a bit that a prime hangout spot would be in front of a grocery store.
However, it then occurred to me that in high school, sometimes we would take a trip to Meijer, a grocery store, and try on the free little nylon footies in the shoe department, wander aimlessly through the store and conclude the evening with a visit to 7-11 for Slurpees.
I guess that teenagers are basically the same everywhere.
