Seriously? Guess I’ve been married too long…??

January 19, 2010 by  

Okay — the setting is Breckenridge, Colorado.  7 hottie college friends. 2 of them single. 5 married. 4 of whom have children. Spent our days either reading gossip, on the slopes, at a pub on the mountain,

catching up on our lives and varying careers, or in the hot tub.

At about 4:30 pm, 3 of us ski off the mountain and head to our condo. Surprise, surprise. 3 lonely guys are sitting outside their adjacent condo, locked out.

I just give a nod, and think “sucks for you”.  However, my single hottie friend had something else in store.

You guys locked out? Why don’t you come in our condo… get warm until your buddies get back. Wanna a drink?

As you can imagine, since I have no desire (nor am I allowed 😉 to flirt with them (only 1 was cute, anyway), I start drilling them with questions. And I mean drilling. You would have thought they were being cross-examined by Jack Bauer.

They were all in the Airforce, had driven through the night from Oklahoma… hadn’t slept yet (it was @ 4:30 pm), and conqured a full day of skiing. Evidently, they killed the prior 2 hours while being locked out by jumping up a story from the back of their condo, and hopped in their hot tub until they couldn’t handle the heat anymore.

Anyway, to make a long story short (too late), and since I had nothing to risk… I said, “C’mon, guess how old we are??”  I had just grilled them on their ages: 24 yrs – 27 yrs. They gave an ‘ole, “Oh, we’re not falling for that trap”.

I asked about 3 different times, in different ways. Was I fishing for a “Wow, you girls do NOT look that old; you girls look younger than that?!?!”? Possibly.

Not sure. I just know if looks could kill, I’d be dead.

THE LOOK. And I mean, the look. My stunningly gorgeous single friend gave me the evilest eye; she was so pissed at me for asking that question (me = clueless), you would have thought I would have caught on. Nope, not me. Whaddo I know? I’ve been married since I was 26 years old (scary), it didn’t even dawn on me. She lip syncs to me: “Shut the h-e-double-hockey-sticks-up!!!!!! I don’t want them knowing how OLD I AM!! What are you an idiot?” They were young.  We weren’t.

SHAME on me. It NEVER, ever would have even dawned on me that this would be a topic of concern. Nothing ever did come of the chemistry between my strawberry blonde friend and this guy, but the dialogue was an eye-opener. I tried to apologize with the only excuse I had: “I really don’t feel old. I didnt’ think it was a big deal how old we are…? I actually still feel pretty young.”  Well, I was lectured that you never reveal your age, especially to younger guys. I’m the worst friend ever.

    Um no. Not the worst. The funniest. The worst would be if you scratched your hairy legs (come on you know you didn’t shave) in front of them.
