I'm a dirty old man.

Today after a run to the grocery store I noticed some cheerleaders hosting a car wash in a parking lot near our town house complex. I thought to myself my car needs a good scrub so why the heck not.

I go into my place and start unloading groceries when my roommate appears.

"Hey man," I said. "Cheerleaders are having a car wash. We should go get ours washed."

"Dude," he said with a frown. "We're 31 years of age. They're way younger then us. If they're in high school that means they're like 15!"

"Oh yeah," I said. "I keep forgetting how old I am. I'm to the point of being a nasty old man. It's the same kind of guy my girlfriends in high school complained about."

"Yeah no one wants to be that guy," he replied.

"That guy ain't going to be me," I stated.

High school cheerleader car wash was a big event when I was a teenager, but now the fun is over. Back then my buddy and I would bring our cars in at the same time and watch the girls scrub the vehicles down. The girls knew what we were doing, but were kind enough to not care or they just simply enjoyed the attention.

I don't feel 31, but I need to start reminding myself on a constant basis that I am.

Amen to that!

I always wonder how men salivate over the sight of a cheerleader car wash, yet frown on sexual offenders. Isn’t that one in the same.. ?

Ya just don't see women going nuts over a group of 8th grade guys trying to sell you their raffle tickets.

I stopped for some gas earlier today and noticed that my front and rear windows needed a little wash, so after pumping the gas, I went over and got one of those squeegy things and started cleaning the windows. I looked over at the car beside me, and noticed a creepy man eying me with a smile on his face. Hmmm, friendly guy. I continued cleaning the windows, and as I was finishing up, I looked over again, and there he was, same look in his eye, same grin. Ewww! I ain't no high school cheerleader, but he was waaaay too old for me... besides his wife was sitting in the car waiting for him.

31 doesn't qualify to be a dirty old man. At this point, you're just a dirty man... which is perfectly normal, so no worries.

Alyssa - Well there's a difference between looking at a cheerleader, well depending on their age, and being a sexual predator. If the cheerleader happens to be under the age of consent, well yes you're a sicko. Regardless I do find it strange that schools allow their children to be whored out like this.

Grace - Well I'm not sure how I feel about being dirty anyways. Being in your 30s is strange when it comes to stuff like this.

It's a fine line to walk, my friend. I appreciate young, beautiful women as much as the next 30+ year old man, and I don't think there's anything wrong with that, per se.

If you're leering, drooling, or flirting with them...well, then, you've crossed the line from "Dirty Old Man" to "Creepy Old Dude". It's a fine line, and one I try not to cross.

Mattbear - We had it so good when we were young.
