Q & A

I spend my lunch hour with my work friends.  We are a pretty close bunch at my job.  My daughter and her boyfriend find it bizarre that they never see me without my “entourage.”  I find it bizarre that they are so concerned with my doings.   What do you ladies think?

    • Maybe they‘re jealous that you have an “entourage“. As long as your a good girl, they shouldn’t be concerned about your doings. My daughter would be happy to see with people.

    • It’s funny you pose this question. I was just talking to my daughter who is very social and has lots of acquaintances but she was just saying that her friends are not “my friends“, I have had the same girlfriends for 3 decades and we are always together when it’s possible. This generation is all about texting, twitting or face booking.

      SOOOOOO very, very sad.

    • I would wonder why it matters too. I enjoy spending my break time with a few coworkers.

    • I think sometimes kids have a hard time looking at their parents as anything other than their parents. Seeing them in a social role with others may look strange to them. I spend lots of social time with my nursing cohort since we‘re together so much. I love that. I’m so much older then them they tell me it’s nice to be “friends” with someone their parents’ age.

    • Gee, I would think your daughter and her BF would be very happy that you have a group.

      Our son is always happy for us when we get together with our travel group or head out to a new restaurant with friends.

      My God, are we supposed to shrivel up and die because we hit middle age...sometimes I want to put on my dancing shoes and hit a club.estatic

    • I would think they would be happy for you, that you have a group to hang out with.

      I have a friend at work that I eat lunch with regularly but unfortunately she is leaving.  Tomorrow is her last day.

    • Thanks for your thoughts ladies.  I agree with everything all of you have said.  :)

      Diane, that’s a bummer your friend is leaving.  

      The biggest part of my “entourage” is people young enough to be my children.  Part is guys my own age.  I enjoy spending time with all of them.
