No Cool Riders
Our morning commute is often punctuated with the motorcycles roaring past us, splitting lanes as they go.
So help me God if you ever date a guy who rides a motorcycle, Poppyseed.
Poppyseed: “Oh, you don’t have to worry about that, Mama. I won’t date a boy who rides a motorcycle.”
[For the record, we really were discussing motorcycles.]
FrumeSarah: “How do you know that?”
Poppyseed: “I’ll ask him before our first date. And if I forget, I’ll ask during the date. And if the answer is yes, I’ll just dump him.”
She is only seven. But a good time, I figured, to have a talk. And so we discussed what are the important qualities in a husband and a boyfriend. And how your last boyfriend (who might also be your first) will also be your husband.
- not mean
- funny; makes me laugh
- tall like my daddy
For a kid, she’s got a pretty good list so far.
