Postcards from Retirement

Mom belongs to the Red Hat Society which holds a monthly gathering at someone’s house, at a restaurant, or off on an excursion somewhere.  This month, they were meeting at an Italian restaurant and I tagged along, decked out in Mom’s extra regalia. I know some of the ladies already, including my Aunt Jeannette (Mom’s […]

A HORRIFIED woman has revealed her mother has tried to set her up with an ex-boyfriend who “always thought she was pretty”. Writing anonymously for Whimn, the woman recalled how her parents had amicably divorced when she was a teenager and said it was “heartbreaking to watch [her] mother try to navigate the hideousness of 21st century dating”. The woman urged her mother to start dating more casually – but was horrified when she suggested she shack up with her ex After watching her mother have her heart broken by a series of “loser guys”, the concerned daughter suggested that she stop “trying to find something serious and just have some fun for a while.” Fast forward a few months and the woman was delighted to see that her mother had followed her advice and casually seeing a man called Max – who was a whole 30 years younger than her mum. She wrote: “He was gorgeous, with floppy hair and a semi-shy, semi-flirty smile.” After meeting him at her mother’s house for dinner, the woman says she “could tell something was going on”. Described as ‘gorgeous, with floppy hair and a semi-shy, semi-flirty smile’, Max was 30 years younger than the woman’s mother Approving of her mum’s new love interest, the woman added: “Max and I got along well but he was also very respectful and attentive to my mum.” Following that first meeting, the woman recalled how “he was over at her house constantly” but never clarified with her mum whether he was her boyfriend. She joked: “I never asked mum outright what was going on with Max because although I was glad she was getting some, she was still my mum. I didn’t really want any heinous details.” But as she was so caught up in her own relationship dramas, the woman says she hardly noticed when she didn’t see Max around the house any more. [quote credit=”Cougar mum”]Remember Max? He thought you were pretty. He was wondering if you’d like to go out some time[/quote] Soon afterwards, her mother became involved with a man called Roland “who was her own age and things got serious.” Thinking that was the last she’d ever hear of Max, the woman was totally lost for words when – out of the blue – he asked her on a date through her mum. She wrote: “One day, I was visiting my mum to discuss my latest relationship catastrophe when she casually dropped a ten-ton nuclear bomb. “‘Remember Max? He thought you were pretty. He was wondering if you’d like to go out some time.'” Describing how her “body shut down from the force of the horror”, the woman was disgusted by the very thought of her mum “offering me her sloppy seconds” while visions of Game of Thrones’ Lannister twins quickly sprung to mind. Unsurprisingly, the suggestion that she start dating Max made her think of the Lannisters in Game of Thrones After the woman clarified that her mother had in fact slept with Max, the enormity of what she was suggesting started to dawn on the “flustered” mother. Although she had only seen Max casually, she said that he had “treated her like a princess” and had “never seen a real future with him”. And, as bizarre as the whole scenario is, you can’t blame the mother for wanting her daughter to be with someone who treated her well… right? However, her daughter couldn’t get over how her mother “knew exactly how capable he was” of making her happy… *shudders* Unsurprisingly, the woman never did get in contact with Max and says the very idea makes her want to “pass out from nausea” – can’t say we blame her.

I love traditional Japanese guesthouses. They are the perfect combination of rustic, simple and unusual to appear exotic. Combined with genuine hospitality of their owners, fabulous home-cooked meals and ubiquitous hot baths they make for a most enjoyable stay. So, it comes a no surprise that a stay at one of the thatched roof houses […]

Feeding Squirrels On My Way To Work

Cheryl McCray’s paintings have finally earned her five stars of fame, as well as a tile on Starlight Boulevard. The crowd at Chery’s tile placing ceremony was rather subdued. It wasn’t until Venessa Jeong (Cheryl’s five star actor wife) stepped up to congratulate her that the crowd went wild. Perhaps, thought Cheryl, they just didn’t […]
