What teenagers hide in their closets.

I don’t believe in privacy for children and teenagers are like big bodied two year olds who won’t fit into a playpen anymore.  So I do random room searches.  I confiscate lighters, gauges, piercing needles.  I read notes, book covers, and little crumpled pieces of paper.  I throw out empty chip bags, gum wrappers, pen caps, safety pins, and broken crayons.  I find random stiff rolled up socks, used kleenex, memory cards, banana peels, and torn out pictures of vampires from magazines.
