I Too Can Become Mary Kay Letourneau If I Wanted


So I went to Wal Mart, I know I am not supposed to be shopping there due to their bad labor practices and them killing small businesses, but I had to make a quick run so I could get some peaches for my husband's peach cobbler he begged me to make all day, so I had no choice. I so digressed on that. Anyway, I went to Wal Mart, and the check out boy was checking me out. He was cute for someone's child (cute little blonde skater boy), as he was no older than 17, but he was really trying hard for conversation, and spoke of his disappointment when he asked me was I wearing a wedding ring and told him yes. This was a confidence booster, because at 32 I am still not considered someone's momma, and because it was nice to know a white guy could openly display an attraction to a black woman.

I had a similar incident at the Wal Green's a couple of weeks ago, I was approached by someone's child there as well. Some young baby deuces asked me to roll down my window last week at a stop light.

So as an older woman I am asking, is it easier for the younger guys and girls to IR date? I mean it was controversial when I did it in high school, people gasped when they found out I was going to prom with a white boy. Is it easier now? Do most people look in disbelief, or do you notice they don't seem to care? As it seems the children are open to IR, where as the men my age aren't, but yet the OLD men are open as well, but I think that is because they just want a hot young thing to fulfill their midlife crisis and have shaken fears of what society might think.

What do you guys think? I am for one excited that if divorced, I could always become Mary Kay Letourneau, but only for people over the age of 18, I have seen too many female prison movies.
