NEWS FROM THE FUTURE – Busting Teenage Partying with a Fluksometer…
I returned to Adelaide the next day (1 Jan). My home was very clean but I found a few tell-tale signs: disposable cups with sticky red liquid in them in one of the bins, a trace of the same red sticky stuff on my sink, and post it notes accidentally left on my fridge saying things like “Molly, you may have to open up another bottle”.
What happened to Amy? Well to be honest I wasn’t very mad, just curious about the mystery. I actually enjoyed the detective work side of guessing what was going on and finding supporting evidence. Bart, the inventer of the Fluksometer, was rolling on the floor laughing when I told him the tale.
All my friends knew about the incident so when Amy joined me in Geelong for the next week she was teased relentlessly. Eventually she came clean, and said:
“All my friends who didnt know Dad said ‘How could he do that? Who measures power from across the country’? Those that did know Dad said ‘He knows. Dont worry!’”
“When I realised we were busted there was a mass exodus. I was the last one out and could see a continuous line of teenagers stretched up the street over three blocks.”
One of Amys friends put it well: “You gotta get dumber parents Amy.”

The poor kids these days, they can’t get away with anything anymore, all this information and connections has made hiding bad behavior from your parents impossible, if they truely care. Heck most schools these days will send out an automatic call to the parents if their kids were not present for the days roll call, GPS and cell phones can tell parents were the car/kid is and how fast they are going.
I gota say there is something for letting kids make a few mistakes and them having to learn from them on their own. Its a slippery slope and each parent needs to learn where that slope is for their child between freedom and big brother status.
Good way of describing, and fastidious post
to obtain information concerning my presentation subject matter, which i am
going to present in college.
