LUNCH

After asking me how I would feel about relocating to Chicago ("For an engineer, of course!"), expressing her total disappointment in my priorities ("Work, independence...these things are silly. Life begins only after one gets married!"), and her confusion about how I could've missed the marriage boat that, according to her, most Pakistani girls my age boarded five years ago ("You're not getting any younger, you know!"), my cousin recently concluded that my biological urges must be out to lunch ("although, as I said before, the urge is much stronger in boys...").

Ah, family...you've gotta love 'em.

Is it the lack of marriage material guys that has taken your urges out on a lunch date?

i think the notion that men's urges are stronger than women's is a myth. we just exercise less control over them.

?: I never said my urges were out to lunch. Those were my cousin's words.

Cyberfish: I concur.
