This is the kind of crap I’m privy to as the mother of two adolescent males and as the wife of an infantry combat vet. The invention of Dick Sauce. Is there anyone out there that can relate to my misery?
But let me start from the beginning.
The scenario: We are in my car. My hubby is driving, my 14 year old is in the back seat with his two buddies, and I am in the passenger seat. As you can see, testosterone outnumbers estrogen 4:1.
We are on our way to pick up our 11 year old at his friends house. The three teens in the back are talking about the nachos they are sharing (one small nachos and cheese because they only had a dollar between the three of them; mind you these are three 14 year old’s, so you can imagine how far a small nachos and cheese will not go). One of the boys, with really long hair, is complaining about my son putting hot sauce on the nachos when suddenly my son says to his friend, “Would you rather have dick sauce with that?”
HAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!! Everyone, including my husband (and except for myself), begins laughing hysterically. And then, suddenly, as if a new unexplored land had been discovered, there begins an intense conversation about dick sauce! Of all things to discuss! And, above all else, without any regard to the fact that I, the woman, the mother, am sitting there in their presence. It’s as if I don’t exist. Or better yet, it’s as though they think of me as one of “them”. Honestly, I’m not sure which is worse. Sometimes, I think the only time any one around here remembers that I am a woman is when I dress up in a dress and heels (which is almost never, but that’s besides the point!).
So there they are, 3 teenage boys and my hubby talking about different kinds of dick sauce that could be served in some imaginary restaurant that they have invented and how hilarious that would sound to order it with chicken wings. And the only thing I can do is roll my eyes, and enjoy the stupidity of it all. After all, they are my guys, and I love them!
