had a strange conversation with my mum earlier.
she was talking about a neighbour – their daughter is getting married today for the second time.
suddenly, she came over all reflective and started talking about failed marriages, especially those of her brothers. then she said:
“sometimes I think you have the best idea, playing the field”
I was mildly shocked by this. I’ve never considered myself as a field player – my total number of girlfriends to date is still in single digits. yes, I might flirt a bit, but nothing more. maybe I should?
