He's so money and he doesn't even know it

You know you are a loser when ... your 7 year old son gets more play than you ever did. Alex just made his first two phone calls to young ladies in his class. They gave him their numbers after school a couple of days ago.

He scored digits from more girls in one day than I did throughout college. I don't know whether to feel proud, worried, or depressed.


Mike: So how long do I wait to call?
Trent: A day.
Mike: Tomorrow.
Sue: Tomorrow, then a day.
Trent: Yeah.
Mike: So two days?
Trent: Yeah, I guess you could call it that, two days.
Sue: Definitely, two days is like industry standard.
Trent: You know I used to wait two days to call anybody, but now it's like everyone in town waits two days. So I think three days is kind of money. What do you think?
Sue: Yeah, but two's enough not to look anxious.
Trent: Yeah, two's enough not to look anxious. But I think three days is kind of money. You know because you...
Mike: Yeah, but you know what, mabey I'll wait 3 weeks. How's that? And tell her I was cleaning out my wallet and I just happened to run into her number.
Charles: Then ask her where you met her.
Mike: Yeah, I'll ask her where I met her. I don't remember. What does she look like? ... would that be the money?
Trent: You know what. Ha ha ha Mike, laugh all you want but if you call too soon you might scare off a nice baby who's ready to party.
Mike: Well how long are you guys gonna wait to call your babies?
Trent, Sue: Six days.

Kids today are *so* confident. My friends 9 year old is incredibly self-possessed & mature for her age (partially I guess because she's the only child of a single Mum). I'm sure that I was never that confident at her age!

As to getting girls numbers.... I don't think that I even *noticed* them until I was 12-13 [laughs] never mind actually talking to them..... [rotflmao]

Be proud of him.

Oh, I am proud of him. My depression has more to do with my own unhipness. [sigh]
