I'M A COUGAR AND I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT
So there's a stock boy at my new job -- I'm gonna peg him at about 18 years old -- who I suspect has a crush on me. Last week he followed me all around the store, gave me a "how you doin'?", and wanted to know how old I am. The look on his face was priceless when I told him. And I figured that would be the end of it, but today he asked me if my band is just a ring or if I'm married.
I've probably been married since he was in middle school.
One of the girls at work says that makes me a cougar.
You know, when I was 16, I worked at a concert arena. I was one of the only females, and I was a good 30 years younger than most people working there. I can't tell you how many times gross 23-year-old roadies would come on to me. I used to get so annoyed at the unwanted attention at work.
And now, shoot, I want to hug this kid.
It has been years since someone has shown an interest in me. It is sincerely the most flattering thing that's happened in a long time. I am just tickled pink that this kid even remotely thought it would be appropriate for me to talk to him. I have been giggling all day.
Now there's an ego boost. Heh.

I only recently figured out what "cougar" means. I had been puzzled by Saturday Night Live's "Cougar Den" skits.
SNL could use another guest star named Sarah. Lorne Michaels, are you listening?

poor kid, he actually probably thought about this long and hard, before approaching you....
You are still far to young to be a cougar, I also think cougars prey on the young, which I am very doubtful is what is occurring.
I think this is a case of being "hawt".

"You are still far to young to be a cougar"
Definitely. She'd need a lot of makeup to join that SNL skit.

That is most certainly not occurring! (Guard Wife's cash register rings again.)
Seriusly, I agree with your assessment of the situation.

Ha, well...as flattering as it is, I am certainly not encouraging
him. So you're right that I'm not technically a cougar. Heh.

No no no,S. You are not a cougar. Cougars go AFTER the younger men. Predatory.
When they come after you it is just cool as hell.
