When I look around and see how worldly and savvy even the youngest kids are ... it makes me rather sad in a way.
Innocence, once lost, is never restored, rather like virginity ...
Growing up, my friend and I were true lambs ... innocent and naive as hell.
THOSE matters were never even discussed at home ...
and the measure of a "tramp" or a trashy girl could be as simple as swearing !!! like damn and hell !!! REALLY !!!
One day Nancy and I got hold of very forbidden book ... human sexuality.
Looks of disbelief and shock crossed our faces ... among so many other reactions ....
and the pictures ...OMG !!! *fanning self *
I remember saying that no way was anyone doing that to me !!! EVER !!
We continued reading to the climax so to speak and ... I do believe this may have been the genesis of my left of centre humour ...
I stated that "Wouldn't it be funny if he p*eed in you?? !"
Which created more giggling and raucous laughter .... resulting in a parental intrusion and removal of that 'disgusting material'.
Many many years later , Nancy was getting married ...
Have never seen her so rattled EVER !!!
Nothing and no one could calm her down ..
SO .. I leaned over and whispered in her ear ..."Wouldn't it be funny if he p*eed in you?? !"
She started laughing ... and laughed so hard tears were rolling down her cheeks .
After repairing her happy tear stained cheeks ... she was again the girl I remembered from childhood.
Calm and smiling ... with the hint of laughter in her eyes ..
Perhaps a bit of innocence can be recaptured .... a mind virgin, as it were.
