we had 4 university students for dinner last night. it was fun.
(i had to keep reminding myself that they see me as being really old - even though i'm sure i only graduated from their same university a couple of years ago...!)
anyway, i got asked The Question...
so, Dee, what do you do now? just looking after the kiddos?
(yep. you know the one) i actually surprised myself - instead of being indignant and offended by the question, i was actually totally confused and stumped by his question. what do you mean, "what do i do?" the clean house...? the meal...? the kids...? huh? isn't it OBVIOUS what i do??
honestly, for a moment i was completely baffled. then i remembered he was just a kid (didn't you *hate* being called a "kid" when you were 18/19!! haha) and what clue did he have.
i smiled kindly at him and said, yep, i look after the kids and let him off the hook.
sweet kid...at least he asked.
maybe i should just get this and run through it with the next person who asks :)
