The Summer Abroad

Bob:  The granddaughter is flying to Paris today.

Mrs. W:  By herself?

Bob:  Of course.  It'll be great for a 22-year old girl to get away from her helicopter parents.

Mrs. W:  Good Lord.  I'd be scared to death.  I didn't even know how to get on a plane when I was twenty-two.

Bob:  They didn't have planes when you were twenty-two.

Grace, actually both Mr. and Mrs. Warr understood instantly that it was all in fun and a good laugh was had by both. (They may have a few years on them, but they did not pre-date Kitty Hawk.)

Tsk, tsk, Lin. All in good fun. See comment to Grace!

I think young people should have chaperonnes. I'm apparently REALLY old.

I loved being in Paris, but would not want to go there by myself.

Vee, okay; but the young lady is an adult. (I found Paris a little intimidating and I was a fifty year old man.)
