... aged, senior citizen, elderly, well done, not getting any younger, fermented, old as dirt...
So I met the Old Man in February of 08, and he’s still hanging on! It kind of reminds me of one of those birds or parasites that follows it’s host(s) around...never leaves...NO MATTER WHAT.
Sometimes I throw stuff out there, just to see what he’s going to say and it doesn’t phase him...hmmm for example
I May Say:
I never want to get married
I don’t want kids
I want to move out of the Country
Sex isn’t important
I don’t want a relationship
I can live without sex
Old Man’s Response:
Uhhh, really? Ok
When we initially met, I didn’t realize he was trying to date me. I guess the first time he leaned in to give me a kiss was the first indication...that was a few months after our first “date”, which I didn’t know was a date. (We do have a date on Sunday...with a scheduled "Talk" to follow...)
The things that I like about him, are also things that I dislike about him. It’s like a catch 22, with a little acid on it for good measure. I know I can’t see myself having a LTR with him, but at the same time, I get the impression that he doesn’t want one as well. I mean, he does HIS OWN thing a lot. He WAS married for 20 years, been divorced for 4 now, and he has GROWN children. I mean seriously, what could he possibly want with me? I’m still a kid in an adult sized body (humor me, 29 is the new 19!). When I was 10, he was 37, when I was 18, he was 45. He’s an OLD OLD Man, who wants to try some of my Young, Young Booty...he probably went to the Playboy Mansion and drunk the water Hef drinks. Seriously, when I told my twin Aunts about him this week, even they said he was too old for them, and they’ll be 40!
I know it sounds rantish...but he DOES have qualities I like, which I’ve mentioned before. If 29 is the new 19, 56 is the new 46! Rock on Old Man, Rock On!
