    I remember being young and single, meeting a new date’s parents for the first time, shaking her father’s hand and he saying “Pleased to meet you” when he was really thinking “I know what you want to do with my daughter, and if you do, I’ll strangle you.”

    Too bad he can’t butter up those crusty old folks, instead….

    But he’s young, and feeling his oats.

    When he’s a little older he might rise to the occasion.

     

    He hasn’t really gone bad, you know.

    He’s not in that mold.

    Sure, kids his age like to loaf a bit..

    they still knead to grow up.

     

    But… corny as it sounds, he’s wheat on her….

    and she thinks he’s the best thing since…..

    um…..

    well…. since sliced bread.

    There’s something gone a-rye here.

    He just doesn’t seem well-bread to them, maybe a little seedy.

    I’m pretty sure the relationship will go stale.

    The “upper crust” has been defined as a bunch of crumbs stuck together by their own dough.
