A true statement

Em and i went out to dinner together last night. You don't even want to know what prompted this statement:

"Mom, i'm not going to have gay sex with a man!"

We disrupted the rather quiet restaurant laughing.

Gay sex with a man? Can she do that? Glad she's not... I think.

amusing said...

well, there's just nothing like a rollicking good time out with the girls, even when the girl{z} is simply your daughter!

Platypus said...

I adore conversations like that - it's what makes motherhood all worth while!

jen said...

she can't really, can she?

can her mom? perhaps that's what came first? wait...

i'm confused. and humored.

Maggie said...

I think this is evidence that Em is a chip off the old block, eh?

Bob said...

maybe she's a closet hermaphrodite.

meno said...

toni, I think this is what you might call an oxymoron.

amusing, and there was no wine involved either.

platypus, she does make me laugh, although in this case it was unintentional.

jen, nope, she can't, by definition. Neither can her mother.

maggie, we are scarily alike.

bob, i might have noticed that when i was changing her diaper for the first 3 or so years of her life.

Ya ha! Ain't life great?

patches said...

In the silicon age, sex is only constrained by a persons lack of creativity....or chaffing. I hope this conversation was just loud enough to amuse a few of the other patrons in the restaurant. I adore listening to excerpt of conversations outside that original context...just fuels the imagination.

Elizabeth said...

You were...discussing some of the ways a person can contract HIV? I really DO want to know what prompted her to say that!

Thailand Gal said...

Definitely an oxymoron.. and it's funnier than I can say. LOL


Peace,

liv said...

This is so cute to me. And, it's nice to know that the teenagers have SOME boundaries these days! sheesh!

Now, to get my new crop of divorcee gals to adopt same.

Lisa said...

Well, somebody has to do it!
I swear, kids today never want to do their chores.

Sanjay said...

Gay sex with a man

lol.. that is so funny. :)
Err how does that even work?
Wait I don't wanna know.

Josephine said...

Smart girl.

Mother of Invention said...

What a hoot! Her statement was likely the topic of many dinner conversations in that restaurant!

Joan said...

I can't imagine what would have prompted such a statement but what a hoot!!! I'd loved to have seen the faces of any of the other diners who might have overheard your conversation.

gr said...

I agree with your daughter and my wife does too.

meno said...

lucia, we sure have fun.

patches, alas, i don't think anyone overheard us. Sad.

elizabeth, nope, no HIV talk. That's all i'm sayin'.

chani, we had a good laugh over it too. :)

liv, There was a great look on her face when she realized what she had said.

lisa, ha ha! She IS only 16, going on 50.

sanjay, i think it doesn't work. And if it does, i'm with you and don't want to know.

josephine, and silly too.

moi, too bad we had no eavesdroppers.

joan, no one heard us, but they sure heard us laughing.

gr, i think women everywhere can safely make this statement.

Lynn said...

I presume that she meant to say "Mom, I'm not going to have sex with a gay man!"...at least I hope that is what she was going to say...with teenagers, you just never know.

Tink said...

LMAO. "Gay" sex as in up the-

*cough*

Wow. Priceless.

meno said...

lynn, no, she meant gay sex, with a man. See tink's comment below for illumination.

tink, yes, as in "up the..." If you ever have kids, be prepared for anything to come out of their mouths.
