FortKnox's Journal: I was born 10 years too early. 45

Journal by FortKnox
That's right. I should be excited that my 17th birthday will be coming up this October, but noooo... 27, married, and have a child.

It never fails. Wife is gone for a few days, so I go run out to do the chores. Grocery shopping, Home Depot, etc... What happens? I get hit on by highschool and college girls (yes, plural! Like 4 in the grocery store alone!). My once 'nerdy look' back in high school is the popular thing now-a-days, and that is simply unfair. And, of course, no one is around, so my wife doesn't believe me when I tell her about it (hey, I'm a nerd, would you believe a nerd getting hit on by young girls?). I just need to walk with my hand up so everyone can see 'the ring' or something.

Oh well, I'm just sour cause I don't sleep well without my wife next to me and there isn't much to do when I can't come home and play with Joey.
So how was everyone elses weekend?

Update: You all suck. Can't you just say "Geez, FK, you must look hot now!" instead of "Its not your LOOKS, its your RING" (or whatever) :-P

I was born 10 years too early.

  • I just graduated High School, man. Could you perhaps take a picture of exactly what you were wearing? Seriously.
    • short hair, pushed forward, wear a thin goatee, short sleeve shirt, jean shorts. I am thin but semi-built, so I wear semi-tight t-shirts to kind show off muscles.
    • High school girls like older guys for some reason. I went to a local high school for a career day type thing, and I had several girls come up and talk to me. I'm 25 and I was wearing khaki's, a white button up shirt and a tie, so they knew I wasn't a student.

      I remember being in high school and all the hottest girls were dating older guys. I remember thinking, "How do I attract these girls?" Apparently the answer is graduate college. :-)

      We were just talking about how to attract women over in my journ [slashdot.org]

  • I worked all weekend fuck you very much.

    I actually got to take some of Saturday off, had lunch with my parents who are in town and went to a festival. It was a good break from the tedium of work. Too many days in a row without a solid day off makes me grumpy. And having tonsilitis..
  • No, no, no...if you DON'T want to get hit on, take OFF the wedding ring. :) Wearing a wedding ring is an ooollllld trick. A certain breed of particularly promiscuous women LOVES to hit on married guys. I have no idea why, but wearing a wedding ring in a bar (so long you are at least moderately good-looking) is one sure way to get hit on by these types. I am NOT making this up. :)

  • So how was everyone elses weekend?

    Mine [slashdot.org] was... interesting. Well, at least to me.

  • Sheesh, why doesn't anybody tell me these things?

    Look. You've got it pretty good. You're twentyseven and have a wife and kid. I'll be 27 on the 24th... and i'm single with cat. No college. No car. And two disabling illnesses. *laugh* the thing is, i'm not bitter, but have some perspective, we've got it pretty good, and at least you've got company and your health!! i hear people complaining about not being 17... you know what? I'd pay money to not be seventeen again. Even if i had the health that went with

    • I hear ya. I'm 28, single, got in 8 years of college before the funds ran out (12.5 credits from graduating & worked 40+hrs the entire time to pay for it. Only $20K in loands after 8 years). Got a mediocre job in tech support. I get to do some cool hacking, but very little. I also work part time as a bouncer at a local bar. I don't have life threatening diseases, but I do:
      - Have 2 death certificates (stopped breathing for more that 15 minutes twice)
      - Have severe peanut allergies (see previ
  • Made you feel good didn't it?

    I get hit on a good bit by women where ever I go, but that's how I roll. ;) (sorta kidding, but not really)

    Anyway, the other side of makes you feel good is also kinda freaked out. Hmm, am I attracting these kids for some other reason? Am I projecting a "desperate will hang with kids 10 years my junior" attitude? Probably not.

    Oh, and it probably was you, but it was also that ring too...more than likely you were viewed as "safe" and they were just being little jackals pract
  • My wife and I were at the community pool, lifeguards and swim instructors are high school kids. We were watching one daughter have a swim lesson, and watching the other one splash around. I noticed that the guys were looking at her, the girls looking at me.

    It's good to be the king. And queen. :)

  • Maybe you're just more aware of when you're getting hit on than you used to be, since you've been there, done that, and actually gotten laid at this point. Hindsight being what it is and all.

    And here's another idea -- there's something about marriage, either being married or talking to someone who's married, that just kind of draws a nice boundary. As a married woman, I am a LOT more comfortable being more friendly (some might say flirtatious, but that's really not my intention) with guys that I never wou

      Good point. New rules are in order:

      1) Women must tell you up front that they will never ever sleep with you when you start talking to them - conversation may or may not continue after that.

      2) Women must make it blaringly obvious that they are hitting on a man. Talking about the California recall does not count as be
      • 1) Women must tell you up front that they will never ever sleep with you when you start talking to them

        Hey -- never say never!!

        2) Women must make it blaringly obvious that they are hitting on a man.

        Like this [slashdot.org]? Or this [slashdot.org]?

        3) Men will never use lame pickup lines. Pick-up lines that are not lame include, "Nice ass" and "Hi. Are you legal?"

        So what in the world DOES qualify as lame, then?!

  • ...before mrsVR sees it and starts complaining that someone only 1 yr older than me already has a kid!

    ;)

    • Hehe... I could say stuff that would make her DEMAND having a child by the end of the year.

      Simple math. How many kids do you want? How far apart do you want them? After 32/35 its really tough to have a child.

      So lets say you want 3 children, 3 years apart. If you want to have the last one at 35, then that'd mean you have to start 'trying' at 28 at the absolute latest (29 you have the first, 32 the second, 35 the third). If you want the last one by 32, you should start at 25 at the latest.

      Now, you
      • Being younger with kids is nicer, cause its easier to keep up with them.

        Also is nicer when you're a grandparent along these same lines. My wife's parents are about 5 or so years younger than my parents (61 vs 56?), and it makes a difference, boy. My mom gets worn out, but my wife's mom is still able to keep up a little more.

        This is exactly how I think, so that makes it very hard to actually cope being nearly 27. And the people

  • I was able to sit out in the garden with the laptop, watch the wildlife doing its thing. Downloaded some good stuff via Soulseek, mostly old Coldcut Solid Steel and Breezeblock sessions. Took a few pictures with the digital camera.

    Unfortunately, I'm working this week, and the temperature here is due to hit 35C around Wednesday. Bad enough that we don't have proper air-conditioning in the office (the water-cooler is my Saviour!), but I hear that the rail network is on a go-slow because they're afraid of the
  • That's insane man!

    Oh well, just consider yourself lucky, and do something cool with the little bump in self esteem.

    I'm married, 29, and don't recall the last time a chick hit on me...
  • There's also something about the way us married gus (even us nerds) carry ourselves that makes us get hit on. A certain combination of the fact that we don't want them and the fact that we get laid and therefore don't have that tension built up. Therefore, as I said in TechnoLust's JE comment:

    Married guys have a lack of lack of confidence.

    yes, that's an intentional double negation. It's the same reason the jerks got hit on in high school. They were confident. We were (typically, not universally) more
  • I have the (fucked up) tendency to think about how I "wasted" my life by not doing this and that, and how things would be if I wasn't so shy, such a slacker, such a loser, or i could actually get a girl :P (yeah yeah, i know, i brought it on myself...fine, i accept it :P) And i'm 24 years old. Broke, unmarried and free, mind you ;)

    Maybe i'm just venting (more like ACTUALLY venting) but I think there can be worse things going on....so cheer up! :P

    Oh, and my weekend was alright :>
  • The alias "Pimp Daddy FK" isn't taken if you want to go register it. ;-)
  • Nerdy looks? IN? On what planet do you live? Fuck it man! I'm nearly 27 (4months to go), I am single, have no kids, and look like a nerd. No girl ever looks at me, or god forbid, tries to hit on me.

    So, NO, it is not the nerdy looks at all. It *must* be something else. Don't ask me what, for I don't know, but it's *NOT* the nerdy looks.

    Don't fucking complain will ya, I mean you've got a wife and a kid at that age. That's the thing you *should* be having at that age.

  • So I visited relatives in Ohio for the weekend, including one of the old fashioned family reunions that big farm families love to do.

    I know some people here are from Ohio, or have been there, so what I say may make sense to them.

    Here is the situation. Guy living in a climate where all precipitation is in winter or 2 inches spead out all summer . . . . visits east where it rains once or twice DAILY and everything is green. The dirt even seemed green. Probably reflections from the vast jungle around the
