Kids these days!

This past Friday I took a family friend to the airport. He's about 20, and has just completed his second year of college. As we were navigating one of Portland's many lovely gridlocked surface streets (seriously, it took about 1.5 hours to make it about 10 miles to the airport, what the hell), I asked him about the daily life at his school. Before long the topic wound around to the dating scene. I said, "oh, so what's it like at [college name]?" He said, "well, you know, it's 60% women." So I responded, "that's pretty good, no?" He gave that "meh" shrug and said, "well, I like to say that the odds are good, but the goods are odd."

Well played.
