I have a just-a-friend friend, female, who is about ten years older than I am. She has a rather pretty daughter, about ten years younger than I am. Last Friday I met this daughter by chance, and she was in a really weird mood. If I wasn’t so geeky, I’d say she was hitting on me. Naturally I stayed polite and just a little distant, as is befitting of an older male friend of someone’s mother.

Yesterday evening I talked to my friend on the phone. The big news? Her daughter formally got engaged. Last Saturday.
