My daughter is currently between boyfriends. The other day, I asked her a question…
“So, any crushes you want to share with your old mom?”
“No. Not really,” she mused.
“Not really? Ooooo, sounds like there’s someone!” I said, smiling.
“Well, I suppose there’s always Taylor Lautner but there’s no chance of THAT ever happening,” she answered.
“Why not? Don’t sell yourself short! You are a beautiful, intelligent, wise, amazing young woman. Taylor would be lucky to have you! Why wouldn’t he be interested in you?”
“Well, geography for one thing,” she grinned.
“Your dad and I had a long distance relationship for a while and it worked out just fine,” I replied.
“Mom,” she laughed, “Do you even know who Taylor Lautner is?”
“Oh,” I chuckled, “I see. Well, you’re probably right.”
And now we’re both in a fit of uncontrollable giggles.
(So I suppose my self-deprecating comment earlier about being her “old mom” is absolutely spot on. Oh, I am so out of touch!)
