My lovely oldest never had a boyfriend through high school. Off she went to Hillsdale College ( for a fine great books education I might add ) where within three days she called me to say she had found a guy. When they came to visit us some months later, I thought it would be fun to take “that boy” and my daughters to the shooting range as a fun activity.
Apparently it wasn’t so much fun.
My oldest informed me later on the way back “that boy” looked at her and said in an anxious voice, “He was trying so send me a message!”
