While this space is usually used to recount the utterances of our younger son, Sebastian, today the quip is from our older boy. Nathan now 18, is 6’4″, a senior in high school and finds his parents to be extremely un-cool.
Nathan’s girlfriend was over for dinner. About halfway through the meal, Nathan got up to get more water, then returned to the table without asking his girlfriend (whose glass was also near empty) if she would like a refill…
My wife: “Were you going to ask her if she would like some more water?”
Nathan: “Oh, um…”
Me: “There goes boyfriend of the year out the window.”
Nathan’s girlfriend: “I don’t know if that was ever on the table.”
My wife and I both like her.
