Awkward social situations

I was invited to play a card game called Cards against Humanity while at the reunion.

It is a game that is popular with the college aged nieces and nephews.

One of the young ladies mentioned an issue that had arisen after she joined some popular dating apps.

Apparently, this young lady can fall asleep by closing her eyes for five seconds.  Not only can she fall asleep, she will fall asleep.  By itself, that is not controversial.

It did get interesting when the young lady told us that she cannot keep "narcolepsy", "necromania" and "nymphomania" straight.

It took her a while to figure out why she had so many creepy guys interested in her.


  1. I'd be surprised if young ladies of today even knew what "narcolepsy", "necromania" and "nymphomania" are.

    1. She is a pretty sharp girl and she may have been pulling my leg. Her younger sister got a 33 on the ACT composite and I would be surprised if this girl got much lower.

      I still think it is funny.

  2. She was pulling your leg. Never underestimate the intelligence of young people and the power of dry humor.
