A while back we spent the weekend with friends. They had invited over a couple very young friends that we hadn’t met yet in the hope that those two young people would hook up.

What does Young Person #2 say? “That’s really hot that you feel comfortable enough around me already to do that.” It was amusing. Not as amusing as they thought but, hey, to each their own.
