Yesterday was a very busy day. Shopping with the GGs was (as Toby's dad used to say) like shopping with raccoons. Eventually I took the GGs to Mom's house where we enjoyed the beautiful day playing in her backyard. We got back to Duncan about 6 PM, where I met up with Toby and Jes to attend a dinner for a local politician. I haven't been to that many political fund raisers, but this one was okay. The food was less than wonderful, but there was some good desserts. While standing in line to get our dry burger and chips, Jesse saw someone she knew - a young man whom she had recently met while playing soccer (her coworkers and a few locals play every Monday after work). He joined us in the burger line and visited with Jesse. Then he joined us at our table. He seemed like a really nice kid. He teased her about her cheating at soccer and how the guys all let her get away with it. Then he said he was a senior in high school and asked Jesse if she were in college. Toby and I both turned to Jesse to see how she handled this one. With her very charming smile, she said she was working. The conversation continued. He eventually went to set with his family and friends.
Although Jesse said that the young man was just being "friendly," it was clear that he was a bit smitten. Toby just shook his head and said, "Poor kid! He has no idea that Jesse is ten years older than he is."
