Tuesday

from the mouths of...some babes, some not

interesting words i've heard, in no particular order

"I'm pretty sure I've been to Brokeback Mountain." Spoken to my best friend by her 8-year old son.

"Would you like me to feel them?" From a cute clerk at Wild Oats when I said I couldn't tell if a package of coffee was ground or whole bean.

"I'm freaking out about living forever after I die!" My son, age 8, in the midst of playing merrily

"You've aged very well." Said to me by a classmate from HS - is this a compliment??

"When you don't wear makeup, you look, like 41 or something - really old." Again, my darling son; seems to me this rather negates the comment from my old classmate.

"I understand you have a husband, but I would very much like to be with you." This may or may not be what it seems - it was said to me in halting English by an Italian man at the Singapore Art Museum last December.

That first one is a bit scary; the last? You go, girl!

The hype bears out. I found it more than amusing!

I'm pretty sure I've been to Brokeback Mountain, too. It's not all it's cracked up to be. And when I don't wear make-up? I look 12.

(I can't possibly imagine another meaning for the last one...)
