True, embellished and fictional stories for your amusertainment

The Younger Woman

Stephen was born 26 days before me, so every year we go through a short period where he’s older. The day before his birthday, we had the following conversation.

Pam: Well, tomorrow’s your birthday – you know what that means? You’ll be married to a younger woman!

Stephen: ALRIGHT!!!!! (too enthusiastically)

Pam: What?!? I didn’t expect that response. (I smacked his arm – a couple of times)

Stephen: I didn’t mean anything by it. Fortunately, it doesn’t last long. Younger women can be… you know – difficult to live with.

Pam: You mean high maintenance?

Stephen: Yeah, that’s it.

Pam: We also don’t have much in common being from different generations and all.

Stephen: True. Thankfully, we should be able to relate to each other again in about a month.

I made sure Stephen had a nice birthday, but we were somewhat distant. We clearly had different interests and couldn’t get any meaningful conversation going. Fortunately, things will be back to normal in a couple of weeks.

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,
