meself BS: Social lies we believe (37) RE: BS: Social lies we believe 20 Mar 19


"I spun around, caught him ... "

Sometimes these sorts of situations can be awkward for men, and I'm reminded of something that happened a short time ago: My wife and I were driving along a busy street, when we spotted a little toddler toddling along all alone on the sidewalk on the opposite side. By the time we got turned around, she had reached the corner, where she had taken the hand of a rough-looking man who would be old enough to be her grandfather - but she was Chinese, and he wasn't. The man seemed to be waving and calling to someone across the street - then three teenaged girls came running over from the high school there, and the man handed the child over to them. I had noticed in the distance, in a green space among townhouses, some children playing - ostensibly being supervised by a teenaged girl who was, all this time, thoroughly engrossed in her cellphone. The teenaged girls with their little charge headed off in that direction so all seemed well. But I sometimes think of what a dicey situation that man could have been in, if those teen girls weren't conveniently there.
