And when you thought it couldn't get any weirder

BIG HUGE MIDDLE AGED WOMAN ALERT

This post may make you feel middle aged or out of touch or extremely dull or Daily Mailish (i.e worried about the youth of today, this country's gone to the dogs, in my day etc etc)

Eldest Beautiful Daughter was at a friends house watching The Boy in Striped Pyjamas (this is not especially relevant but the devil is in the detail they say) on DVD. She was given a lift home by her friend and her friend's boyfriend.

When they arrived at our house they were chatting in the car and her friend mentioned that it was her and BF's anniversary at the end of the month, they've beeen going out for a year. The friend asked her if she would help them with their anniversary present and before EBD could reply the friend added but this will only work if you're open minded.

Now EBD is getting slightly nervous, she is a product of her environment which means God love her, she has had the diluted version of my upbringing (Irish Catholic , good girls don't, you reap what you sow, guilt etc) but with the addition of her fathers Scottish Presbytarianism (with the hint of Wee Free, Thou shalt not and most certainly not on a Sunday) and my added on, not quite fully understood but like the notion of stuff like Karma. It's fair to say that EBD is not the most open minded 18 year old you'll find, she's too feart of her mammy finding out.

The friend went on to say that as EBD does Media Studies at A2 level ( waste not your breath that it's not a real A level, we've had that conversation many many times, EBD can do my part verbatim and deadpan) and has made short films and has access to cameras and an editing suite etc, would EBD film friend and friends boyfriend having sex

Of course, the perfect anniversary gift, nothing says I love you more when you're 18 than a bit of home made porn.

That's a tricky one, good that EBD told you about it. She can always say it's against her religion to look at someone elses boyfriend naked I suppose.

Good Lord! I do feel old. Not to under play the romantic side of Debbie Does Dallas but really....the youth of today!

(I take it EBD did say no????)

Matthew said...

Now I'm feeling like a bad friend. I should get on FB and offer to film my friends shagging, I think.

HOLY JESUS AND ALL THE SAINTS IN HEAVEN!!!! What on earth is going on in these kids heads????????

Oh auntiegwen! As the mother of a 20 and a 17 year old I can so get your line of thinking :)There are times my girls are charmingly prudey (they wouldnt dream of sunbathing topless even tho they have boobs to die for and I have always done so!) and yet sometimes they come out with stuff (usually that a friend/acquaintance has done/thought/said) that makes my hair curl! And I have to paste on my 'really-worldly-yet-cool-Mum' face and pretend it doesnt freak me! LOL but as others have said we can only be grateful that they tell us :) x

Mrs Worthington said...

sorry have tagged you

Looking Fab in your forties said...

Fucking hell! I hope my girls don't get up to stuff like that! Bed EBD wishes she had chosen History!

Laura said...

But isn't it nice that this girl thinks so highly of EBD to ask her to do such a personal thing?

Why don' they just film themselves on their phone's? after all why else do they have cameras on them? :O)

Jon Storey said...

I'm tempted to say that I have a camera...!

Sounds as if you have a great relationship with your daughter. Well done.

Yes, now I feel even older than I feel........

Looking for Blue Sky said...

oops that couple must be out of their minds! If they get someone to film them, what happens when they break up or the video gets on Youtube? It'll haunt them for the rest of their lives - probably worse for her too. Well done to EBD, and someone needs to talk some sense to her friend pretty fast...

You didn't say what her answer was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its sort of put a bit of a downer on the Motorhead ticket I gave my hubby this year and I was wondering if when EBD was finished there she could pop aroun.....ah...no...oh ok

Dearest All,

Eldest Beautiful Daughter did say no, she may even have played her get out of jail free card in reminding them of her phobia about feet.

And as I failed in my middle class mummying and didn't pay for my child to learn the harp (therefore enabling her to play at weddings every Saturday till she graduates) and allowing her to earn some much needed cash, is it too much too ask that she dabbles in a bit of erotic film making? it's very expensive time for me, you know...
