Here we go again…

I’ve been “vacationing” in my home town for a few days now.  It’s very relaxing and while it’s not exactly a vacation spot, it IS beautiful.  The only problem with being at home is there isn’t much fodder for blogging.  So, I apologize in advance if this month is a little light…

With that said…this morning I woke up, checked my e-mail, checked my blog, then went on Facebook.  I hadn’t been on for more than three seconds when “bink,” I had a chat…..from a 22 year old man boy who “stayed up all night because yesterday was his Friday” and really “wants to see me tonight.”  I’ve met him three times, always in the bar.  Why did I accept his friend request?  He is a friend of a good friend of mine and I didn’t want to be rude.  Anyway….so I get these messages and I am laughing and I tell him I really can’t afford to have a crazy night because I am a student and don’t have a job.  And he says “yeah, I’m in the same boat.  I mean, I pay all my own bills.”  (I think this is meant to impress me.  I will not comment further on this….)

THEN, after about 5 minutes, “bink,” another chat, this time a 24 year old.  OH. MY. GOD.

WHY is it always the young ones??  I don’t mean on Facebook….I realize the people who are actually in the same age bracket as me are at work right now, but I think this is just a sampling of what my day to day life is like with people who are way too young to consider constantly trying.  Is this the universe’s way of telling me to give the young ones a shot?  I don’t know if I could stand it….
