When a Grown Teen Asks Me About Green Women

bebraveOn a recent Friday night I had this random text conversation with one of my grown teen, now in his 40s.  I have his permission to share.

Greg:  Strange random question.  I remember you being a fan of the original Star Trek.  What do you think of the new movies?

Me:  Love them.

Greg:  Me too.  I’m watching both tonight for the too many too count time and it made me think of ya.  A lot of trekky nerds hate em.

Me:  They would be nerds, of course.

Greg:  Lol.  I’ve decided to marry a green woman.  Is that too much to ask?green woman

Me:  Yes.  What a silly pre-Valentine thought.

Greg:  Sorry for my weird sense of humor.  Btw, I’ve come to love M*A*S*H as well and Bruce Willis movies with the exception of the last Die Hard.

Me:  It’s about time you realize that everything about me is absolutely right!!

Greg:  Yea, age brings wisdom.

Me:  If only the whole world was as smart as me.  And now you.

Greg:  Luv ya and miss ya.  Someday I’ll bring my kids to VA to visit ya.

Warm fuzzies for everyone.  This is my actual life and it is good.

p.s.  I don’t need to explain to you the love of Bruce Willis.  MASH takes no explanation and has no shame.

About Be Brave

Brenda Seefeldt began life in youth ministry in 1981. That is before the internet, YouTube, texting and even before PowerPoint. (But it was after flannel boards.) Brenda has written and shared much of what she has learned through the resource of Wild Frontier and in many youth ministry publications as she continues on in youth ministry. Brenda is a brave one. She stutters yet is a national speaker. She loves teaching so much she’s also been a substitute teacher for over 20 years. She’s brave enough to enter any classroom at a middle school. She also simply loves teaching groups, whether they are teens or adults. Due to the many years of youth ministry, Brenda has “coached” many grown teens in dating. She finds herself very opinionated on that with lots to share. Brenda loves her God-given family–four sons and 4 grandchildren. They are God-given, not birthed. That alone is a brave story, one she tells here and there as the story really belongs to her sons.
