I'm not allowed a girlfriend

That's it, it's official. I'm single forever.

I was talking to Freja, my eldest (six) at the weekend. I can't remember how we got to this part of the conversation, but she told me that I was not allowed to have a girlfriend.

"Why is it that Mummy is allowed a boyfriend," I asked her, "but I'm not allowed a girlfriend?"

"But Daddy, Mummy needs a boyfriend."

I tried to pursue this further, but Freja said "I don't want to talk about it any more", and so that was that.

You must have told her that there was little chance, so she need not worry

But with your suave good looks, witty repartee, dress sense, sober lifestyle and natural charm I'm afraid that Freja is in for one helluva disappointment.

Are these people your friends?

What passes for them, yes. Sad, isn't it?

This actually seems quite fair. I recall you saying on several occasions that Freja won't be allowed boyfriends, EVER. Didn't you?

No! Not at all. Once she's thirty-five, she's allowed a boyfriend. So long as she's back home by 9:30, obviously.

It's all for her own good, you know. I know what blokes are *like*.

*Nods in agreement*
