Life would be easier for her if she met a guy. Preferably a strong one with skills as a mechanic. She will text to let us know she is moving, or her car sounds funny, and wants to know if we can make the two hour drive to help her out. I’m like, “Are you serious? You live in a co-ed dorm. Bat your eyelashes and ask a guy to help!”She said it’s not appropriate to use feminine wiles to get a guy to do what you want. (Seriously. This can’t be my child.) I told her she doesn’t need feminine wiles. She’s a ginger kid. He will be indebted to her forever if she steals his soul. And then, maybe she can return mine.
