Sometimes I Learn From A Mans Point of View
Last week my husband and I attended a dinner with other supporters of our local Catholic high school. It was fun! Light, happy, entertaining. There was one sister there who has been at the school for like 100 years. She is round and happily wears thick cream colored 70's style plastic glasses. She is very bossy. I have witnessed her tell embarrassed parents to get in their seats at back to school nights. I like her! And she knows it, because she can tell. She came up to me and said, " I have to tell you how much I enjoy your son. He is very bright. And such a doll." On the way home, I told my husband I couldn't wait to tell our son how much she liked him. My husband said, "Yea, but don't tell him what she said." I asked, "What? Why not?" He explained, "Most teen age boys do not want to be thought of or referred to as a doll." I could only respond,"Oh."
