Serious Boyfriend

“You know what, guys? I really like Andrea.”


“Yeah! I think I’m going to ask her to go steady. What do you think?”

“I don’t know, man. I heard Andrea has a pretty serious boyfriend.”

She does, friend. She does. The question is, what the hell does that even mean? “Serious boyfriend” could mean two very different things: Is their relationship serious, as in longstanding, intense and very sexual? Or is her boyfriend serious, as in somber and reflective (like the grey-sweatshirted gentleman pictured above)?

If it’s the latter, then I think I have a chance. Sure, I’m a jokester, but I’ve got a serious side too. I can talk about world issues and the economy and shit, like a serious boyfriend does. I can sit there and look miserably pensive while everyone else is having a blast. No problem. Gotta figure out which version of “serious boyfriend” I’m dealing with.

Just thought I’d throw that conundrum out there. Mull it over, na’mean?
