Betty White Time Travel Machine
When I my marriage broke up, I started dating younger guys. It wasn't an intentional move. The guys my age were boring and unattractive, so I went younger. Normally, it's not an issue at all. That's most likely a testament to my immaturity. Only twice has it sincerely bummed me out. Both situations were very similar- I had my boyfriend at the time say "I wish I could go back in time and meet the 20 year old you." My current boyfriend spoke these words the other night. He's a total sweetheart but this bummed my shit out. I've now had two men say this to me. It baffles me. What the hell does it mean? Oh, used up, raggedy Erin, I wish I could meet the young, supple you. Do you think Betty White hears that same thing a lot? Oh, I bet you were a looker in your day, Betty. I mean, I feel like Keith Richards when guys say this to me. My current boyfriend did say the younger me wouldn't be as cool. This is so true. I told him she would roll her eyes at him. Then, I went to bed. It really bothered me. I know he didn't mean it as an insult, but how else could you take that? What, I'm supposed to be flattered that you'd rather meet a younger me? I can't imagine saying this to a someone. If time travel is invented, there going to be a couple of guys trying to bone a young Erin.
