I never...

Did you ever play that game "I never" in college? You know the one that you say I never did something (I never had sex in a car) and then you drink if you did. I used to get so drunk off of this game. Now what does that say about me? Anyway I was thinking about this game the other day when I heard myself say to one of my kids a phrase that I so often heard from my parents. The whole "this hurts me more than it hurts you" bullshit (OK it actually does not hurt me at all). I never wanted to sound like my parents (drink), I never wanted to use trite phrases to get my point across to my children (drink), I never wanted to dress my children in matching outfits (drink...I am from the South for God's sake) and I never wanted to tell my children that I just did not have enough time (drink a lot). Somehow my inner checklists just keep getting longer and longer with less and less items checked off.

I think it says you had a lot of sex in cars. just kidding. I'm sure you just listened to music and talked in cars.

You never had sex in a car?!?

If my father's old Chevy Cavalier could talk, she would tell you MANY sordid tales!!

BTW - Gay men don't usually play "I never" - because there are so very few things we haven't done...

Truth or Dare was much more of a favorite back in my day.

XOXO

The sex in the car thing was just an example David. I will not confirm or deny my exploits but lets just say that steering wheels are not comfortable. Truth or Dare huh? Never a fan. I hate the Dare part.
