It’s full preparation mode at the Connor residence. Little things to think about like medicines I might need overseas, new socks, and those electronic devices (or more specifically, their individual chargers) that you can’t seem to find. I have all day to pack on the 23rd, since the first flight leaves late, and the second flight leaves even later. I tossed around the idea of buying a Gameboy, or whatever kids use these days, to play with on the long flight, but a quick trip to Walmart to see the $200 price tags was a big NOPE. I downloaded a game on my cell phone for the first time ever instead for 99 cents. At least half of “the guys” will show up on two flights within 10 minutes of each other. Then it’s an hour long bus trip to our final destination.
Julia is “gentle, tender and feminine…family oriented.” She feels that “every modern woman sooner or later faces the choice between her job and a chance to have a baby. I will never hesitate if I have to choose between my carrier and the happiness of maternity.”
She is “searching for a man with similar views and interests with whom I could share my most intimate thoughts and dreams…I want my man to love me as I am and I will accept him fully, with his dignities and shortcomings as well.”
Three more days, gentlemen (and ladies), three more days.
I did have another interesting conversation with a female customer. Started out with the usual “You’re not married? What’s wrong with American women?” Because I can’t give the good answer at work (fat, cranky and they don’t care) I gave the standard “Interested in European culture, colleague from Russia, etc.” It took a rather unexpected twist, however, when the woman answered my reply with:
“Well, I don’t know what’s wrong with girls these days, a handsome well-to-do person like yourself ought to be something women could appreciate. Shame on them for making you look overseas.”
I don’t think she was being sarcastic (it rarely is so with women of her era), so it may just be that she’s a NAWALT that’s seen the writing on the wall about the culture we live in. I wonder how her daughters/granddaughters have turned out?
