Real Life Friday – What all the boys thought about…

I lift my glass to those ‘good ole days’  when there wasn’t much to do but drive the gravel backroads, smoke cigarettes, and drink just about anything we could get our hands on. How we managed to survive it all is still a mystery to me.

When I was a kid hanging around the only grocery store in town, drinking Yoo-hoo and stuffing my cheeks with Bazooka Joe gum a surprising change started taking place. All of a sudden, it seemed like everywhere I looked there were girls. I mean, sure they were there before but they were just annoying little brats whose sole purpose in life was to cause trouble.  I wasn’t sure what happened and honestly I didn’t care. All I knew was those little brats had been transformed into females.  I can tell you that the only good thing about a hot ass, dust filled summer in the arm pit of the universe called Wakenda, Missouri was…the hotter the sun, the fewer clothes those females wore. A pair of short blue jean cutoffs and a halter top could start the blood pumping and I’m going to say, that to a 13 year old’s imagination, there were times when maybe that wasn’t necessarily a good thing.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to say that all we could think about all day and night was sex. I mean, sometimes we had to eat. But it did seem that we had an awful lot of different names for something none of us knew a hell of a lot about. Boff, boink, bump, diddle, dip your wick, doing it, doing the nasty, getting down and dirty, getting laid, got lucky, going all the way, rounding the bases, home run, touchdown, hide the sausage and squeaky-squeaky. Man, we became experts on the subject. But I suppose that’s what happens when you’re stuck in a town with the population about the size of a football team.

    I find it so funny when it’s always the ‘boys’ who get the reputation for thinking about sex all the time (especially at that age) because girls are thinking about it just as much I think. It’s just a part of puberty and the experience of growing up.

        I think it’s perfectly natural for both girls and boys to have urges and I think it has just been ‘expected of’ boys to have them but for girls they are more often made to feel embarrassed or ashamed for their desires. That was my experience anyway growing up in a Christian background. I think girls just are better at hiding it 😅

    As a female who grew up in a very large city…I can testify…Ha!…we thought about the same things! 😉
    And, yes, with all of the things we did…I’m amazed we survived, too!
    HUGS!!! 🙂
