Another funny story to share. D has ventured out solo with the girls a couple of times, but out of necessity. Actually - yesterday's venture out was also out of necessity but this time, it took him to the mall.
"Baby.." (as an aside - he's always called me that - I hardly ever hear my name come from his mouth - and if it does, I know he's irritated with me!) "Baby..... I have to tell you. Going to the mall with the girls...............................total chick magnet."
Whaaaaaa?? Totally not what I was expecting! I was expecting "Oh it's not so bad" or "It was great to get out with the girls" -- Noooooo. Chick magnet. Nice.
