In a follow up.....

to yesterday's blog....the whacked-out 17 year-old and I had a conversation last night about boys, specifically about the ex and the now 5 other interested hormonal males.

Of the five possibilities, she has been chatting with one named Derek and although she won't admit to it, I KNOW that the interest is mutual.

Now bear in mind that the not-so-nice ex's name is Eric.

This was our late night conversation:

Me: Did Derek call you?

Her: Why?

Me: Didn't you say he was going to call?

Her: You said you didn't want me talking to him!

Me: No I didn't.

Her: Yes you did!

Me: Why would I say I didn't want you talking to Derek?

Her: Oh, Derek....I thought you said Eric!

Isn't there a Joe or a John or a Michael she could date?

Does the new interest's name have to sound exactly like the ex?

Derek is very much the Ken in barbie land and ERic is very much someone that seems like a big sally with low esteem so that he can prey his attempts of manipulation and control on young ladies minds..

Maybe the same name will help ease the change---and since her ex will be on the brain, if she slips it's easy to cover--

don't tell Derek the X's name is Eric!
