I have a 20-year old son.
The other day he says, “Mom, I’m the longest relationship you’ve ever had.”
Of course, he stole this line from me so he gets no points for being profound.
Last month when I was impersonating a pedestrian he got up faithfully at 7:00 am and drove me to work and picked me up without complaint. After I thanked him profusely, he said, “We’re family, Mom. I’d do anything for you. Besides, I don’t think I really had a choice.”
My ex-boyfriend used to refer to him as “Oedipus”.
I kind of feel sorry for the men who will come into my life. They better not come up in here trying to compete with either of my kids. That would be a lost cause.
After he took me to pick up my car he came with me to the gas station. We pulled up, I got out and pumped the gas. Parked in front of us was a guy driving a van which advertised an HVAC company. He was also pumping gas. Shortly after that, some other guy comes out of the store after paying for his gas and gets in his car. I finished up and got in my car. The Prince says, “Did you see those two guys looking at you? I don’t think I like that very much.”
I can’t believe how quickly 20 years has gone by.
