I recently started hanging out with a high school girl named Luzy and brought her to church with me last night. I was reminded how few filters teenagers have on their thoughts and comments. We were in the hall at church, grabbing a cup of coffee before the service and Luzy turned to me and said "when do you want to get married?"
I was a bit startled (I've only known this girl for a week) but good-humoredly replied "now." An older woman standing nearby heard this exchange and smiled at me.
Luzy immediately followed up with "how many kids do you want to have?"
I paused and moment and then decided honesty was the best policy so I said "three or four."
The older woman gave me a sharp look and said "oh honey, you ARE ready to get married."
