I was not eavesdropping, but could not help overhearing this conversation between two guys in the locker room at the 'YMCA' today.
Guy # 1 seemed to be consoling his friend and his voice sounded quite compassionate as he said: "...never let a woman hold your wallet or your watch."
That caught my attention. I couldn't quite hear Guy # 2's reply, but he seemed to affirm that platitude.
Then Guy # 1 repeated: "Nope ... you never let a woman hold your wallet or your watch ..."
It seemed there was more and I longed to hear the summation of his wise counsel. However, one of them apparently noticed I was within earshot ... and their conversation abruptly ended.
It would have been remarkable advice even if Guy # 1 wasn't all of about 11 years old ... and Guy # 2 (slightly larger) couldn't have been more than 12.
One wonders how that little chap already has so much experience with women.
