X-Rated....You've Been Warned
It's still quite humorous but geez Louise, she often says exactly what is in her head. We work on this and she usually pauses for a few seconds before saying things. Also, she has outgrown the need to say everything, and now runs most sensitive things past me first.
This is a conversation we had while driving somewhere last week.
Me: Are you and Paul (not his real name) going to the Valentine Dance on Friday?
K: Yeah. He wants me to go.
Me: Don't you want to go?
K: I do.
Me: Do the two of you actually dance?
K: Yes, we dance and kiss sometimes.
Me: Good. I'm happy you have a boyfriend.
K: Do you think we'll get married some day?
Me: I don't know. Do YOU think you'll get married?
Me: Do you love him or just like him?
K: I love him but you know how I am...I get really excited about something and then after a while, I'm not interested anymore.
***She is quite introspective about many things and knows herself very well
Me: Well, that's true but you know how you are, so maybe you need to pray about it.
K: Yeah, cause I couldn't do that with marriage. I couldn't just say 'I'm tired of this and I'm done being married because marriage is supposed to be forever.'
***There are a lot of people who should take her advice.
Me: Yes, that's true. Do you and Paul ever talk about getting married?
K: Not really. His parents said he can't get married for a long time yet.
Me: Okay. Do you think he knows what being married means?
K: You mean having sex? Like when he puts _____ his_____ in _____my ______?
Me: Yes...that is an important part...but there's more to marriage than sex.
K: I wonder if he knows about sex.
Me: I don't know and I don't know how you will find out.
***WAIT FOR IT.....
K: I think the next time I see his parents, I'll say, "So, does Paul know all about sex?"
*** In Kalisha's mind, if you want to know something, the logical thing to do, is ask.
It takes a lot to rattle me when it comes to Kalisha, but the scene and the conversation she just described flashed across my mind like a meteor. I continued driving and said, "Honey, I really don't think it would be a good idea to ask that question, okay?"
I warned you, didn't I?
