A Very Adult Question

I have a callow college friend – 19 is she! We have only makeshift-met two times or three. We work the cellies when the weeks between become many. Her call comes through one rainy night – I recall how pinching the air was. She says she doesn’t know where I live and thinks it overly odd. I don’t know what to say, so I limn it to her (she has imagination!). She says she’d like to see it, and school is not far from where I live. I parry it with I can only make it on weeknights. She says that’s ok. So, I raise the white flag and say “soon”.

Am I the only one with questions? Is there a lot of trust? Or am I caught in her youthful crosshairs?

  3. Beware! If you proceed organise your room badly, create a lack of possibilities!

    I don't think there's such a thing as 'a lack of possibilities' in such matters Graham......

  5. Curious to know; is she in the habit of visiting males she hardly knows? Maybe she feels she has no cause not to be trusting?...

  6. Lack of opportunity? NOT! Opportunity is knocking at your door. The question is, what are you going to do about it?

  8. @ Kwame Mensa-Bonsu: Ok, Cousin, I duck to avoid the bullet!

    @ Nana Fredua-Agyeman: But you're coming along with me on that trajectory, no?

    @ grahamghana: Before you said it I did not think such a concept existed ;-)

    @ Anon#1: I agree with you about the lack of possibilities ;-)

    @ Lyrix: I can text you her number to ask her. Seriously, I do not know her that well to judge her. She seems pretty decent to me from a distance. Yes, maybe she has no reason not to trust (how do create the devil/mischief smiley?)

    @ Lucci: Nature always finds a way. Lolz!

    @ Anon#2: Yes young, I believe I called her "callow" in line 1.
