So um... when exactly is a person old enough to be kidnapped? I just imagined a conversation going something like this:
"I got kidnapped last week!"
"Oh, I just turned twenty and since I'm now old enough to be kidnapped I thought I'd try it out!"
Besides, that's just way overprotective. I mean, I can understand not letting a 10-year-old go to the store alone, but a 17-year-old? Really? I went to the shop alone when I was five and - shock and awe - I haven't been kidnapped yet. Seriously, it sounds like she just doesn't want to accept that you're going to grow up and leave home.
