Forty-Year-Old Lover VS The Golden Rule

Forty-Year-Old Lover VS The Golden Rule

10th Post Challenge of 31


“Mother, the old fiend, is taking Pops to the laundromat!” Safire shares, enraged.


“What are you talking about? I thought your parents were happy in their misery?”


“So did we all, except Mother, of course. She’d been planning her secret ambush for years and felt today was the best day to do it.


“Your Dad’s birthday!”


“She never ceases to amaze.


“How did she do it?”


“She brought home her 40-year-old lover, and introduced him to us as though she’d been to the pet shop and bought a puppy. And then handed over a birthday card for Pops!”


“Are you serious? Isn’t she 70?”


“As serious as if my house was on fire!” I knew it! It was just a matter of time. She still thinks she looks as good as she did when she was a model at 21! A joke. The question is, what in hell does a 40-year-old want with a great grandmother? Rhetorical, of course!”


“But she doesn’t have that much money, does she?”


“It’s what she tells everyone that’s the problem.”


“Maybe it’s a phase.”


“She bragged he’s been humping her for 3 years. Slutty imp!”


“Safire! That’s your mother you’re talking about.”


“A mother that deserves to be treated in the way she behaves. Doesn’t everyone, no matter if they are flesh?”


“But then, what about…The Golden Rule? Treating others as one’s self would wish to be treated.”


“Well…” Safire hesitates, shifts her eyes. “It’s sure stated in many religions and cultures. Adhered to, another story. Okay then, so how does the hussy mother want to be treated?”


Hillel, famously once said, aka The Golden Rule:


“That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole Torah. The rest is commentary: Go and learn.”

  1. I had to do a bit of research on this, Cress, “treat others as you wish to be treated yourself”, may I need more treatment or perhaps I should join the Chumash tribe of Indians?

    1. You definitely have to join the Chumash tribe. Have you seen their outfits, Colonel Mustard? Are you part of the Cluedo clan or Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 crew?
