a blank sheet of paper

okay....quick NOTE.

Maturation today for my 12 year old daughter.

Never mind how concerned I was when she said that Nurse Nan and Princess Patty Period were doing the lecture.

Of course I went.

Sounded a bit like an inappropriate college film to me.


However, upon arriving to attend my daughter handed me a folded sheet of paper. "Mom, if you think about asking any questions, or making any comments, check this sheet first for what is okay to say."


Okay, I thought, I am glad she is thinking....

A few minutes into the program I unfolded the sheet....here is what I found....

...NOTHING!!!!

It was blank....I got the point....period!!!



[yes, this is a true TODAY story]

Wow. Did she think of that all on her own? I'm glad you went. Parents need to be involved in what their children are being taught. Personal information like that should not come from practical strangers!

No fair, our parents were never asked...so it was like 18 years ago, whats your point?!!

We had Julie's Story, it was so lame. Anyone else remember Julie's Story? My sisters all ended up having that same video and pamphlet!

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
