That was my reply to someone recently when they asked how many kids I have. Emily, my significant other, was there when I said it. She's the 26 year old to whom I referred.
She... wasn't amused. It was pretty freakin' funny to me though.
Dating a younger person is something many men aspire to. A friend... we'll just call him Ron... recently married a girl 16 years younger than him. I will admit, I was the first to warn him of the potential issues. But it's what he wanted, and it's what she wanted... so who can say?
Emily (who is also 16 years behind me) and I started dating back in January 2006, and at the time I wrote a post concerning the age difference issue. Although she was drawn to me like a "moth to a flame..." (young moth, older flame) she was the one who was trepidatious, mostly about telling her parents.
I just realized I'm rambling and I'm not sure I have a point. Oh yes, the point is, "I have a 17 year old and a 26 year old" was some funny.
She's amazing and I'm glad we both took the chance.
My dog is having surgery as I write this. I'm pacing, typing, pacing, typing.
First, he's having a dental cleaning, which requires him to be completely anesthetized. So while he's under, I'm also having a growth removed from his left rear hip and... um, having his butt fixed.
My dog has a hemorrhoid. There, I said it.
For the past 3 months, I've had to wipe his little bottom every time he... um, defecates. The wiping procedure is very painful, and it hurts me as much as it hurts him. (if you're a parent, you know what I'm saying) (and also if you're the owner of a dog with hemorrhoids)
By the end of the day, he'll hopefully be fixed. He may have to wear one of those collars for a few days, but at least I won't have to risk the neighbors seeing me wipe my dog's ass anymore. I mean, I love him and all, but c'mon.
And this, by way of Radio Randy's blog:
If you live in an area where winter weather affects you, you MUST check this out - several videos of unfortunate winter driving mishaps. Just... wow.
