Threshold

If you're the parent of a little boy, you might one day fall asleep at ten p.m., only to be awoken a half hour later by your 13-year-old son, standing at the door of your bedroom, choking back tears as he tells you he doesn't like the new socks you bought him.

Awwww! The things that evoke at sense of tragedy when you are 13!
