"Mother fought off cougar..."
Because that is pretty much what I did.
Only I didn't save my toddler. I just deflected some unwanted attention from Son #1.
Honestly, the woman who was all giggly-stupid over him, at the orthodontist's office, is too old for Hubby, ok? She has the oldness. She has no reason to get all up in a 17-year-old's business, especially if said 17-year-old is in her workplace, and got there in his mom's car.
Am I painting a picture, here?
Son #1 was fairly oblivious. He just thought the woman agreed with everything he said, and sat really close to him, and laughed all the time, because he is a genius.
Yeah, Son #1 is a guy, alright. Were things reversed, I am sure a daughter would have, in the car, said, "Ewwww, Mom, that old man was totally hitting on me! Gross!"
Last week, I saw The Cougar again. I resisted the urge to tell her how very unprofessional and pathetic her behavior had been.
Honestly, though, Son #1 is stalked by cougars pretty much all the time. Women of a Certain Age need to get a grip.
