In 9 years the following conversation will take place…
H5: “Daddy, Mike called and asked if he could take me to the movies on Friday. Is that OK?”
Hunky Hubby: “H5 – How old are you?”
H5: “Duh, Dad. 14!”
Hunky Hubby: “Let’s review… How old do you need to be to go on a date with a guy without me along?”
H5:”Daaaaaaaad! Come on!!”
Hunky Hubby: “Sweetie. How old?”
Hunky Hubby: “Yup.”
H5: “Dad that is stupid!! You totally do not love me. You are a murderer of love!!”
Not so fast young lady. Remember this?
That’s you on your father’s back in the middle of the Colorado wilderness! That Daddy loves you VERY much.
(But the answer is still NO to dating before you are 35.)
