Woman Uncomfortable Around Attractive Granddaughter

An older woman was explaining to a friend in a coffee shop yesterday that she no longer felt comfortable being out in public with her granddaughter because the young girl had grown so attractive as to elicit constant stares and attention from men. The woman said that she'd given up trying to encourage her granddaughter to dress more conservatively, and she admitted that compared to what some young people were wearing there was nothing particularly outrageous about her granddaughter's clothes. Yet, whenever they were out together the woman said that she was constantly disturbed by the way men leered at the young girl. She said that it was very hard to think of this child that she'd held in her arms since her first days as the object of such intense sexual desire. She said the girl had simply become too pretty to take out in public. Instead she said she's started having the girl over where she was teaching her to bake.
Maybe if I feed her enough cookies and cake, the woman said, we'll eventually be able to go to the movies again.

sometimes, if you love something, you set it free. other times, you sabotage it completely.

Oh that won't work until she's 35. The kid's still got a metabolism.
