    .... 18-year-olds and 20-something look like "kids," and the word "cute" to describe them becomes equivalent to "like puppies and kittens" rather than a euphemism for "sexy."

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

      takes on an entirely new dimension when you realize that you're old enough to be the players' mother.

      when my current boyfriend started hitting on me.

      Literally for months on end, every day, he kept flirting; I first thought it was "cute" and then, when I realized he wasn't just kidding... it scared the hell out of me. I told him he should be in therapy, get his head examined, had a granny fetish, and should be concerned about "cobwebs" and go out with nice girls his own age. Someone without a divorce, a special needs kid, and 17 years more wear on the tires.

      The first time we got together, just to hang out alone, I still thought that 1) I was being punked, or 2) he was just trying to put the "MILF" notch on his belt...

      He moved in with me and my daughter 3 years ago this August, and is saving for a ring. I'm 44, he's 27.  I still haven't figured out if he's the bravest man I've ever met, or just the craziest, but I'm pretty damned lucky that it looks like I'm going to have many years to come to figure it out.
