Recently, I was having a conversation with my children, 14 and 18 years of age. I had to stop them many times to clarify what they were saying. I came to the realization that I am WAY out of touch with modern day talk! So I did what any parent would do, I googled the many habits of teen talk and tried to level up my conversation skills as best I could. So today, this blog post is dedicated to anyone who has ever felt as lost as I do when talking to a teenager.

ICYMI, our Beetle Kill Pine T&G products are lit.  Unfortunately, supply is dwindling so if you have FOMO you are going to want to get in on this wood before it bouncesDWBH though, we will be manufacturing it for as long as it is available. The thought of it not being available some day is cray to me. I can’t even!

FWIW, not only is it a killer looking product, it also has a cool storyATM, we are the only manufacturers that specifically harvest Beetle Kill Ponderosa Pine trees that have been standing dead for up to 5 years. BTW, our beetle kill pine is salvaged from trees that range from 80-400 years old.

If you are into adulting, this product is a definite DIY project. Just get your Bae to help you out! Even the most basic person can install this. I just know if you try you will slay! Some of your friends might say you’re extra if they see this in your home, but if they are your true fam, they will love it, because they are just as bougie as you! If anyone mocks your style just clap back with something witty like, “you’re just jealous!” Because truly, IRL this stuff is the GOAT. I promise most people will see it and be thinking in their head…..goals. While I know some people low-key like this stuff, I’m like literally shook that it is not for everyone. IMO, there is not a cooler product and anyone who says otherwise is sus. So if someone in your life is throwing shade, you should consider that maybe they are not part of your squad. You don’t have to be savage or salty but you can kindly tell them to swerve. You might even be the victim of trolls if you post your new wall on social media. Just send them a DM and tell them to GALIYKWIM. Or you could always take the higher road with a RAK and just reply with HAND. Your call.

PA: No teenagers were harmed in the making of this.
