Eye of the Cougar

Not sure if ur aware of it, but there’s this little movie out called New Moon. It spawned from this so-called phenomenon called Twilight, which is about vampires, and wolves, and love – oh my! But perhaps just as popular as the series itself, is (one of the castmembers) 17 year-old Taylor Latuners newfound, testosterone-filled, adolescently ripped BUFFNESS that has cougars far and wide out on the prowl. And can u blame ’em?


However, the irony of it all is when I was younger I dated older men. 7 years older at one point to be exact. When I was in college, I would never give the time of day to my friends little brother and his friends because they were 19 when I was 21. And God forbid I even considered dating a junior when I was a senior in high school. That would’ve been social suicide! He’s 16? I’m 17? He might as well have been an embryo. Yet nowadays, I consider 26-29 to be pretty much the same age. I always thought it was funny how the older people get – the slimmer the age gap seems to be. For instance; 18 and 23 sounds so much worse than 32 and 37.



Unless of course – the cougar sinks her claws into true love. Which although is rare, has and does happen. I’d definitely like my next relationship to be with someone at least 25+ so I don’t feel like such a cradle robber when I talk about New Edition or Saturday morning cartoons. But in a world where love is so hard to find, I say cherish it with whomever u do find it with. Whether they’re 5 years older or 5 years younger. I personally think most men aren’t ready to get married until their 30s when they’ve dun sowed their wild oats already and hairline starts to recede. But like I said, there’s always that exception to every rule.



Unfortunately, there is no exception to the statutory rape rule. So Team Jacob cougars, no matter how u look at it, Taylor Lauter is still jail bait until Feb. 11, 2010. I know age ain’t nothin but a number but yall seen what happened to R. Kelly.

YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SHIP. YOU ARE THE DIRECTOR OF YOUR SHOW. How it took decades for me to truly grasp this simple idea is beyond me, but I’m so glad I finally not only understand it, but also

I once heard someone say that "A bright flame burns twice as fast," and it's haunted me ever since. Why does it have to be this way? I never had a whirlwind romance before. You know, the kind where it
