Out of the mouths of babes!
There is a young man around, just out of high school. He’s headed to college to become an engineer. His scholarship requires him to work on-the-job with someone licensed in his field. My husband was chosen to be his mentor.
My husband really likes this boy. He’s smart and industrious. He’s got a girlfriend, he intends to marry when he graduates college. He works hard and he saved his money so he could take her on a big date to the local drive-in burger joint. It’s sweet, isn’t it?
Well, he told my husband he hates social media. He says his girlfriend gets on there and sees something romantic; asks him, “Why aren’t you like that?”
It’s eye-opening, isn’t it? We used to be restricted to our local communities. But now a woman (or a man) can search the world for someone doing something her boyfriend or husband is not. It’s like women competing with the endless porn bodies.
In regards to this kid and his problem, my husband told the boy, “Get used to it. Women do that when they’re fifty!”
What do you make of this? What’s the astrology?
