I was intrigued by a promo one of those new reality shows that involved men trying to find a girlfriend/wife and it was their mother who was doing the “screening” them. As you can probably expect there were a few clangers in there. I can’t for the life of me remember what the name of it is.
Maybe I just have a different outlook on these things because I really couldn’t give a toss what my mother thinks of any choices in any woman.
I’m not a mummy’s boy!
- Never have been, never will be. To be honest I’ve never been close to my mother and have often wondered if she is who she claims to be. If it weren’t for the fact that I’ve always had my Dad in my life I’d swear I was adopted.
My mother’s record
- Well she’s onto her 3rd husband so I don’t trust her judgement when it comes to relationships.
She doesn’t know what I’m after
- Some comments she has made to me have strongly suggest that she doesn’t seem to realise that I like laddettes. Give me a women who likes cricket and footy and swears. One who would rather a good feed at the club on a Saturday Night seeing a live band or my other favourite Saturday night activity going to the Drive-In over restaurant any day. Yeah give me Fish and Chips on the beach over fine dining any day.
So in summing up Mother doesn’t always know best. Don’t get me wrong if she did indeed try to line me up with somebody then I certainly wouldn’t say no to it. In fact I feel that if I gave it a shot and it turned out to be a stinker it would be easer to let her down.
The one upside for me is that she isn’t one of those mothers who in a hurry to be a grandmother.
