Last week I was sitting in my office giving some perspective on dating to three of my female students. It sort of ironic, since I was 19 when I had my first date. That was such a disaster it took me four years to have a second. Nevertheless, I’ve read a few books, so Dr. Joe’s thoughts have a long arm.
Throughout our conversation I had this eerie feeling — like something was about to happen. I hadn’t felt that way since my days of debauchery hanging out in Lucy’s Tiger Den in Bangkok.
Suddenly, I got a call from Kaitzer. “Joe, Sabine has something to tell you.”
A million things raced through my mind: Did she heist an armored truck or join the Marines?
“Daddy, I got asked to the Homecoming dance at LCHS and I said yes!”
This was a declarative statement, and the details had already been worked out with her mom. I’m just a driver schlepping kids around town.
