Boyfriend: (n) a male companion with whom one has a romantic or sexual relationship.
Certain words should have an expiration date, similar to milk at the grocery store.
Last week at a stop-off in Battle Creek, Michigan, a seventy-eight-year-old woman introduced her male companion to me as “her boyfriend.”
I tried to be good, tolerant and let it pass, but that little imp in me who refuses to be proper, jumped in and inquired, “Did you guys meet at the malt shop?”
What was hilarious was that she gave me an answer.
“Actually, Starbucks,” she deadpanned.
It seemed right.
Starbucks is the new malt shop … where girls apparently find boyfriends.
