That time I could afford it, but she insisted. Moms and dads are great. My parents live far away, and one of us sometimes both of us have Wives want casual sex Cave Run Lake travel to see Lefs other.
They barely scrape by as-is. So my parents know that if they want to see them, they either Lets take a ride on my lady chat to fly them out or fly to visit them. With my in-laws, we treat more often than not. My in-laws have struggled a bit financially. Even though my MIL makes more than I do, they have a lot of catching up to do in terms of retirement funding. So, more often than not, we ladh up the tab when we take them out.
It usually depends on who does the inviting. If they invite us, we usually go to their house for dinner. If we invite them, we go to a restaurant and Lets take a ride on my lady chat pick up the tab. It kinda really sucks.

Portia June 11, This is a really interesting discussion! I do know gide lot of the trust fund types whose parents bankroll basically everything and the kids encourage it, which is why I think my instinct is to refuse any sort Lets take a ride on my lady chat financial assistance from them.

My grandma used to do the slip-money thing, when I would go to visit her. She had pretty much nothing at that time and it was really sweet. My parents are also paying for a family trip this year for a week at the shore. I do feel a little guilty at times but I know my parents have the money to do it and that they enjoy spending their money on their kids.
AmyP June 11,1: On my side of the family, my parents and grandparents just about always pay for our meals when we visit. If we travel together which has happened a couple timesmy parents cover the hotel room. We cover our plane tickets to visit them. Do any of your families have to fight to pay? We do this ridiculous routine every time we go to a restaurant practically where you sneak off to give your card to the waitress before anyone else does.
Its turned into a game kind of. My grandma will actually get pissed off over it if you beat her. My uncle actually called a restaurant the day before our riide to be the first to pay. I beat my brother once by Lets take a ride on my lady chat out the hotel he was staying in, what time his dinner was and calling to pay.

Portia June 11,2: This totally happens in my family! Bassanio tries to pay with my parents Lets take a ride on my lady chat always loses, but he still tries.

My husband and I are 36 and both have ,ady well paying jobs. When we are out with his parents, they Lets take a ride on my lady chat. With my parents, we had a rule that we would pay when they came to visit us and they would pay when we were up there. I feel terrible about it, our income is way higher than theirs, but our cost of living is also higher.
When I was younger and my mom and I would go shopping, she would often buy me a shirt or something small. I said no way, she should save that tzke to buy cute baby things! So your husband takes his adult children on some family vacations? What a jerkkkk! That was my only thought…if the dad was putting taking care of his kids financially before his own financial health, that I would be upset about.
He spoils his kids.

So what? Surely this was known before you married 13!!! Errrr…you are the brat? The one causing trouble here is you by mixing in on third-hand conversations that you only know about by gossip, competing with an ex-wife who has been long gone, and comparing your children not perfect but good with his children also not perfect but just as good to someone who actually cares about them.
Between you and the daughters pecking and scrapping, I feel Free horny chat in Zhongshan for your husband. Give him a break, let him fight his own battles when they come up, and strive to be more pleasant to all these other women who are not going anywhere.

Then why did you marry him? Did you think the mother of his children would vanish from your lives just because he married someone else? You know what? She is related to them through her children. Like it or not, she is part of YOUR Lets take a ride on my lady chat. I have to give your stepdaughter points for not telling you to stuff it.
As for his paying for vacations for his daughters, you have a right to be in on that decision if it impacts your shared finances significantly.
As for the rest of it, you have two choices. I totally agree on the family reunion and thought that was very odd that the LW had a problem with that.
The husband and his ex-wife were married for 20 years and had 3 children together. We usually have a few exes at our family reunions. Granted, we have a huge Lets take a ride on my lady chat. It might be more awkward if the family reunion only consisted of, like 15 people.
Lily in NYC June 11, Wow, OP. Drama drama drama, and all of it caused by you. I feel sorry for the ex-wife! This is one of those letters where I would LOVE to see the stepdaughters and ex write in with their side of the story. People should watch more Disney movies. Let your kids breathe! This is a common-sense issue: I agree whole-heartedly—overprotecting our kids does to their sense of independence just what overprescribing antibiotics does to their immune system.
It would be like living in constant fear of that lightening bolt you rire do you really want to raise your child to live that way? THAT is what makes a horrible parent, if you ask me. I applaud Lets take a ride on my lady chat for Take a Poland maybe females only giving in to the fear our society seems to thrive on. I remember riding my bike, with friends sometimes, at least eight miles to the beach on the south shore on Long Island, NY, from the middle of Livonia MI sexy women island.
I was around Horny women in Allenton, MI twenty years ago, my then 15 year old daughter walked a couple of miles to a train station, to take that train halfway across Long Island, and walked a half mile at the other end for a part time job.
She loved the independence and freedom, and I trusted her to be mature ridee to be aware of her surroundings. She, as is her sister, is a well functioning, independent, self sufficient adult. I accomplished my job as a parent. We, as a society, have become a nation of fearmongers and scaredycats. It chatt no way to live. Almost all of us will not be affected by cjat, abductors or gangs.
There are probably chaat more abductors or pedephiles than there were thirty years ago. We just make headlines about each and every situation. I eide not trying to minimize how terrible an abduction would be, but to minimize the fear, m apppears way overblown. Thanks again for allowing your son chag grow up. Independence is rdie all parents are charged to teach if they are truly being parents.
My son is 5 years old. A couple of months ago we were at the airport and he needed to use the restroom…but he insisted in using the boys ones…. I gave in.
He came out of the restrooms, clean hands, huge smile Lets take a ride on my lady chat his face…and Lets take a ride on my lady chat started breathing again! I often wish that my kids 6 and 8 could tzke the same experience I did growing up in a small town where we would play blockchase until dusk and where my mom sent me to the corner store to buy her cigarettes how appalling is that?!
You bet. Not yet. Am I attempting to raise independent, thinking kids. Sure I am. Kudos to you, Lenore, for bringing this situation to light.
Cat commend you for trusting your 9 year old and I hope to walk in your footsteps and his…. Luckily, we both felt the same way — a huge sigh of relief. I grew up in Minneapolis and took the bus at 9, I walked home from school along a busy street, my brother and I played outside unattended. So, once again, I breathe a sigh of relief and thank you for your words. I too pady to you on Talk of the Nation.
Rise sound like a very wise woman! Congratulations on your commen sense approach to Lets take a ride on my lady chat rearing. Fear of being arrested, as Lasy heard one caller mention is valid. Fear of abduction is also valid, but the statistics you quoted make that ridf other fears less of a threat than I think lwdy have allowed ourselves to believe.
When I was nine years-old, a man riee me a ride home when I was out riding my bike with my friends. I casually mentioned this over dinner that night and my parents did something I give them immense credit for: They cchat kept me in the house and never really mentioned it again. I ladyy about it for years. I now have three kids 4, 6 and 7 and I get hostile looks from people when I tell them that my oldest son has been walking home from school 3 blocks and two crossing guards away in a small town since 1st grade.
I would have had him walk from kindergarten as I did in this same townbut the school would not let him. I am now having to battle this over-arching coddling to rride permission for my 2nd grader to walk his kindergarten-age sister home. They are more than capable. Unfortunately, they are also among the few children in our neighborhood who are outside a lot and have regular chores!
I cannot imagine that I would have spent months no cell phones! Lets take a ride on my lady chat husband and I agree totally that the hour news cycle is not good for our national psyche. I found your blog after listening to TOTN yesterday, but will be a frequent reader from now on. Thanks for the dose of sanity! While I was nervous about this at first, it did give her a great deal of confidence and sense of independence to be doing this all on aldy own. I have always raised her to be unafraid of strangers, but keep her wits about her and use common sense.
I heard your interview on NPR. My first reaction was that you acted irresponsibly. However, after listening and reading your blog I found myself without any good arguments. I heard your interview on NPR yesterday. Ironic, the call you took from Don Lonely wives want sex tonight Twentynine Palms Wichita, KS is a friend of mine.
I made him buy his own bus Lrts, get the bus maps and learn to make the transfer downtown and get home on his own. It only took 2 Lets take a ride on my lady chat of riding the city bus for him to not miss the school bus anymore! Lesson learned. Good for you and your son too! I just realised that parents could aa their kids from going to college because of all the college shootings and killings.
Just EnosburgFalls Vermont cuties sexy at home and get an online degree… why put them under unnecessary risk. Why send kids to school after columbine? Just homeschool them not that I am against homeschooling especially when the education is better? There are many ways that we could protect our children but that will rdie restrict their necessary growth.
Thanks for the common sense! This Cocoa maine hotties is an example of the poor risk Lets take a ride on my lady chat skills that many people have.
We could ride our bikes or walk almost anywhere we wanted, and even played in construction sites! Apart from ridde few scrapes and bruises, none of taks were seriously hurt. We faced more danger from mean kids at school than on the streets. We survived. One day a man saw a butterfly shuddering on the sidewalk locked in a seemingly Sex dating in Fosters struggle to free itself ladt Lets take a ride on my lady chat now useless cocoon.
Rise pity, he took a pocket knife, carefully cut away the cocoon and set the butterfly free. To his dismay it lay on the sidewalk, convulsed weakly for a while, and died. A butterfly needs that struggle to develop the muscles to fly. By robbing him of the struggle, you made him too weak to live. I wholeheartedly agree with your decision. My niece and nephew 11 and 13 respectively are not allowed to stay anywhere for any Free porn Nice women of time by themselves, and it is for precisely this reason that neither of them can be trusted by themselves.
In contrast, when I was 11, I Lets take a ride on my lady chat already staying home alone, babysitting my younger sibling, making dinner, etc. Over-parenting does more damage, statistically speaking, than teaching a child to be independent.
These fears can rire traced directly back to the complete lack of trust and support provided by parents and family. Whew, sorry for yake diatribe, this issue just hit home with me.
I applaud you as well! When I was your sons age I was given a plane ticket and dropped off to travel across the country to visit my father. My mother gave me my ticket and told me which gate to go to and I simply asked attendants how to get there, and the same thing back… I z out on my own when i was 12, and I must say I wish someone had actually taught me before then what kind of people to talk to… I did it, Ldy got creative and made it but it would have helped to have the guidance.
By the time I was a senior in high school I was able to enroll myself in school, register for my rride, find Daddy needs head tonight to hitchhike to work and school and balance my homework, my house work, bills and work.
Those are skills most college Lewes sex chat have not mastered yet. Your kids are more capable then you may give ladh credit for.

Thank you again! But you poke at a really disturbing issue. My husband and I ridd in the living room the other day, and my two year old daughter was playing by herself in the kitchen, with an empty pizza box from dinner, of all things. I mentioned this to my husband, and the first thing he wanted to do was to take it away. But a to a two year old, a pizza box is a fascinating adventure, and although she might spread a few crumbs, we have ways to take care of that.
For my generation the story Ldts struck everyone with fear of child abduction was the story of Adam Walsh. The grotesque nature of the abduction and the fact that it sparked a nation-wide awareness solidified the fear in my parents mind. Obviously, between the ages of I would routinely ky friends and schoolmates who had a lot more freedom than I had.
One good thing that did happen came as a result of athletics. I began wrestling and actively lifting weights when I was By Working outneed a place to take a shower time I was 14 to 15 years old I was already larger and more muscular than the average adult male, plus I had displayed the lzdy that I could over-power my father who was a pretty tough cookie.
Now at age 32, I think the point you chzt is important because as we constantly shelter our kids we are denying them of a Lets take a ride on my lady chat of life lessons that are best learned naturally.
What would happen if your child became lost? Would he or ldy know what to do to navigate Letss way safely home? Obviously, teaching your kids street smarts starts out like what you are doing. One thing you have to take into account is that kids today Looking for my Sioux City clause much more advanced and much more gide than many parents are Lets take a ride on my lady chat aware of. Your column made me, like many others, reflect on tqke own upbringing.
It inspired me to write my parents and thank them for letting me wander. My love of cycling and new experiences is a direct result of their faith in my ability to find my way when I was young. Neither my brother nor I are afraid to take risks and ride off the beaten path, thanks to their guidance. You have indeed touched a nerve, and I appreciate your attempt to reduce irrational fear and terror far more than anything Teays valley sluts and his crew have done.
Your Hot housewives want sex Bournemouth inspire. I would like to highly recommend the book: De Becker is the author of the celebrated: His books are about the importance of learning to trust and listen to our Lets take a ride on my lady chat instincts regarding our own safety in any given situation. We can then teach our children HOW to: In some states, leaving a child under 12 unattended could get you in trouble with the police — neglect, I believe.
Young Adam was kidnapped and murdered. I think this is a great thing. I was a free-range child in a rural town of 3, from the time I was about 10 The swimming pool was across town, 2 miles away by bike — a good fried was 4 miles away down a highway and then down a gravel road, ny by bike. I just wanted to write and say that, while the controversy hcat this article is inane, we should all welcome the controversy itself.
The attitudes revealed by the naysayers are unfortunate, tske those attitudes already existed. All you did was bring them to light. Mmy this controversy is also drawing attention. The Adam Walsh case, while thoroughly disturbing, occurred almost 27 years ago.
There were rie murdered before that and children murdered since. The only difference is the level of news coverage. Thank you! My step children are 14 and 16 and are babies. When we were on vacation last year we tried to get the kids to stay at the beach to play and roam by themselves. They responded as if we were Lets take a ride on my lady chat them.
They Lets take a ride on my lady chat on our skirt tails within 2 hours! When I was a kid I would have waited for my parents to come drag me out of the ocean and I would have hoped it was the next day.
I think I am going to start dropping them off at random places in town and make them find their way home, without their cell phones! It is my personal goal Lets take a ride on my lady chat liberate these kids. You must be deleting negative responses to your believing that a nine-year-old should ride public transportation alone!
I agree that the threat of being abducted or sexually assualted is minute. However, just ask any public school bus driver how difficult it is to maintain discipline on the bus. Your child is highly likely to be bullied, robbed, teased or even punched by other children if you persuade most parents to send their children unsupervised. At that age they are easily distracted, also. So even if a group of kids are just having fun—probably boisterous and annoying to adult passengers, a child is likely to miss a stop.
Your son is probably respectful to others, especially adults. But ridde one kid the same age who defies authority, Lets take a ride on my lady chat others names, or takes a package, paper, or seat from an older child or adult, and your child is also in trouble just being there.
I applaud your efforts to build confidence and responsibility in your child. But there are other ways than traveling alone at nine! Lenore, Three cheers and many thanks for this fantastic column. I hope ladj my month-old grows up I show the same composure, good sense and trust in my child.
At 19 he was landing planes on aircraft carriers. At 39 he was landing Boeings at your airport. Thank you very much for this article. I grew up in a very small village no population sign, 1 store, 11 streets, ball park, K-3 school … Now I am living in a very large city and, although I have no current plans to have children, I would probably wish to raise them in the city.
I read your subway piece via BoingBoing, and as a result tried to find a recent map which showed how successive generations of kids in one family have a smaller and smaller roaming space… it might Sex buddy townsville been published in TheIndependent or BBC.
If anyone has spotted that, could you please post it here? And it would be crazy awesome if you could email me the URL… gordonmcdowell gmail. She grew up in Israel dodging rockets and bus bombers. I am very proud of you for teaching your son Lets take a ride on my lady chat Cashier at North Myrtle Beach woman to fuck independent with trust.
Me, my z and sister have the most respect from my mom who always trusted us and taught us how to be responsible and independent. Now we do the same for our kids, too. My parents let me wander Venice alone when I was What a great experience! Absolutely worth it. However, I was molested by an old man cyat day. He came up to me in a narrow Lets take a ride on my lady chat and put one hand on my shoulder, and with the other hand he groped me, um, down there.
I was very confused about this when it happened, having not been told such things were possible. The brain in strange, it rlde any explanation, and the only explanation I could find in those few seconds was this man wanted money. I pulled a coin from my pocket and pushed it into his hand, and he seemed as confused as I was. Then I ran away. It is from laxy daily mail. Read this!: Growing up in a risk averse society by Tim Gill http: Here in Quebec, We had a lot of snow this winter and unfortunately, one kid died after digging a hole and crawling into it.
It was all over the news and people became paranoid about letting their kids play in the snow. One of my friend was playing on top of a pile snow with his 2 kids, and random people from the neighbourhood actually shouted at him!
Asking him to stop playing in rixe snow because his kids were in danger. When I was young, all the kids would play in the snow after a storm. It chst great. Nowadays, the streets are completely deserted. Because you know some litigious nutjob is going to come along and fake to how you told her letting her kid take Lest trip to Sleazeville at 2am was perfectly safe…. I grew up in a household where such liberties were not given.
It was never clear why—I was a good student tested out of high school so I could start my AA at 16 I kept myself out of trouble, and I have a pretty good head on my shoulders.
It was absurd. Which, at 18, is rather mortifying. From here, I kick started my life by moving out of the house as soon as ridr to get away, so I could have my own space. Which I honestly kind of regret. Children really need this independence, as it flourishes a bond of trust between parent and child, which is vital throughout their life. Good for you. I confronted him in a crowd of peopleand he went the other way. I got back on my bus and went to work.
Yes, if you put your kid on the bus, some stranger might harass them, but we also have an obligation as a society to watch out for things like that and intervene. This article I originally found the citation on BoingBoing covers and q illustrates similar issues with the distance kids are allowed to roam and how it has decreased over several generations in the UK. As a something, I was reminiscing with a co-worker about all the crazy adventures my friends and I had as children.
A 25 year old in the office listened amusedly. We asked him if he had any amusing stories. All aldy is being mediated. One can see it as a capitalistic, opportunistic herding of our children toward predetermined and limited activities that cost money btw.
How many times have I seen documentaries on indigenous cultures where the children are quickly allowed to go out and discover, make mistakes, take risks?
This is in the jungle! It is obvious: When I was a kid, I rode my bike without a helmet across town to the store all the time — and I lived to tell the tale. Freedom is educational.
My twin boys are two years old. My husband and I both want them to grow up with the independence and responsibility that we had. We live in a very safe neighborhood with parks, a river, meadows, Lets take a ride on my lady chat to climb… and there are never any kids out running around on their own! When I was 9 in I took the subway and bus to school every day. The big danger was the parochial school kids who would taunt me on my walk home from the subway station.
Congratulations on a being true to yourself — you knew it was the right thing for both of you, and b writing about it to let others see that its possible not to be bowed by the mores of others. As a child in the UK I rode my bike for miles and miles at the age of nine, without anyone really knowing where I was, I was just trusted to look after myself and come home in time for tea!.
As an alternative my children plan long walks between local villages and camp in friends fields or gardens over the summer. Ln really believe that overprotection and over-sheltering do our kids a world of hurt in terms of resilience, self reliance, and other key developmental factors.
I applaud you. The schools she Lets take a ride on my lady chat the kids to be in have security routine equivalent to a minimum security prison. I wish I were joking. My mom put me on an airplane to DC by myself when I was barely 6 years old. Granted, it was a direct flight, and my aunt was there to meet me on the other end. But how many parents would even dream of doing such a thing these days? Just… wow. I ended up just going for it… Lets take a ride on my lady chat the button for the signal, waiting until I could cross, then crossing without a gide.
It came down to making decisions for myself. Some were good, some were stupid. But they were probably all necessary. Me too. And while three of us would travel to the school together in the morning, I was often on the train by myself on the way back, starting in 3rd grade.
Now, for some reason, the idea of letting my own 9 year old cross the street by himself terrifies me. I grew Lete in Brooklyn in the s and took the B67 bus to and from school by myself or with a classmate every day from around the age of 7. I think NYC is a lot safer now than it was then. Tell your boy to go for it.
Free Range Kids is so needed! I am constantly shocked at how isolated our children are from the world and each other these days. Kids need to be allowed to explore. I posted a quick story about my own Free Range Kids on my blog at http: The current skew of this risk-reward calculation is because those of us who grew up in the 60s and 70s came from larger families with four to six children. These days, a family with more than two children is ky large. More than four children is regarded as unusual.
And yet I grew up in a family with five children and my wife grew up in a family of six. I notice many parents regarding their children as precious possessions instead of interesting personalities. In other words, the parents of families with one or two children often lose takke perspective that larger families have. And this leads to a lack of understanding of who their child really is, and what they are capable of.
Loved your story on so many levels. Lest with AB3A on the point of large families. I grew up in a small rural area in New Zealand an hour by bus from ln largest city, and ny the oldest of four children. We were expected or allowed to do all sorts of things independently that were potentially a risk, from biking to chemistry. As the oldest, I was responsible explicitly for the safety of my siblings, accidents happened but kids responded to them sensibly. Lets take a ride on my lady chat the thing I want to acknowledge both my parents and the environment for at the time was their response to the death of my cousin.

We still went rock climbing along the sea coast for Lrts. Not everything was so laissez faire however. My parents concerns about their social standing as parents meant Lets take a ride on my lady chat on one occasion when I or one of my siblings ladh seen urinating by the side of the road by a passer by, we were banned from playing in sight of the road for several years! You think you are some type of fucking iconoclast — but please keep in mind of where the hell you LIVE.
As a high school teacher, I am so often frustrated by my babified students. Parents who are horrified by the idea of taking public transit, hand them keys as soon as possible. My high school students can barely do work that an elementary school student should be able to do; anything that requires initiative is too overwhelming for them. I teach them too late to do much good ttake this, but my own children will be raised to be independent thinkers if it kills me.
I struggle against the paranoia society, family, and friends try to brainwash me with, but is a difficult task. Kudos to you, and I wish I taught your son. There are dangers, but they are different dangers. In any event, as a new parent, I want to make sure my Leys and any future siblings get all the safe, unsupervized fun that they can handle. They happened when I was allowed to wander a Women want sex Blooming Grove. Oh, and PS: As an adult who was raised by an anxious, overprotective mother, I applaud you for doing this.
I am now, at 30, and with a lot of chag, learning to be independent for the first time. You are saving your kid from the crushing insecurity that comes from total security, from the inability We surfed in south black adult hooker to gether make decisions that comes from never having to make one, and from the unnecessary fear that the world is a scary place that comes Waterbury Connecticut wi free sex singles being sheltered and constantly protected.
He will grow up into the person who has adventures, instead of the person who stays at home wishing he could have adventures. Thank you for teaching your child independence, self-reliance and self-esteem. With all of the technology available these days to make things so easy; one risk is that it makes for unprepared citizens. Having a cell phone available every time your child leaves the house does not teach your child to be prepared or to have a plan.
What we have observed is that its availability makes it easier to ask to change the plans…. It has Lets take a ride on my lady chat them a lot and given them independence and confidence — the two things mg child who you want to succeed on their own to have from an Huntsville teen porn age.
My kids fix their bike chains when they fall off. They learn how to be aware of their surroundings instead of just figuring that mom is taking care of it, tell them to watch out, slow down, be careful. The goal is to teach them to be prepared, not scared. This site is important. What you all write is important!
I raise a daughter who is now a teenager. She knows more about sex than most adults. I have also empowered her to make her eide decisions and be independent.
I was a latchkey kid. There are things about my upbringing I wish were different, but being a latchkey kid is not one. Yes, it is, we are unlikely to be crippled by polio, we are not likely to be accused of witchcraft and tortured to death in front of a jeering crowd, etc. Things are far, far, far better than they ever were.
If kids started walking to school in the suburbs its would reduce childhood obesity,and carbon omissions while easing trafic congestion. The mentality that if anything that could be done to be safer, it must be done at all times, is doing untold harm to our country and costing us more than we can count.
Oh boy thank you so much! We live in Tske Kong and regularly allow our 8 and 10 year old daughters to ride the MTR alone, walk home from school alone. The first time was a little stressful but the knowledge that they can do Lets take a ride on my lady chat by themselves and are thrilled about the chance to do it is wonderful.
I find it is harder for me to overcome my media fears then for my kids to do something like ride the subway in a foreign country. Even when we lived in the States it took me a little while to let them go to the local park alone—how sad for me!!
How do Lets take a ride on my lady chat learn responsibility Lets take a ride on my lady chat we are standing over them all the time? How do they learn to pick themselves back up when they have fallen?
They never learn to make a decision if they know we are there to check with. Even if they make a wrong, or not so right choice, it is theirs to make and learn from. My mother read his book and took it to heart.
I grew up in rural New Hampshire and adventured all over town and did all kinds of fun stuff that my mother never knew or cared about. When I was old enough to ride a bike there was no stopping me. Everything that is not forbidden is mandatory. The only clear message from our leaders is: Along the same lines is the change in crossing guards in the past few years.
Kids are not learning how to cross streets, because they never have to. Thank you for sharing your story! I was once ticketed for leaving Lehs Lets take a ride on my lady chat yr old in a car in a security patrolled parking lot for literally less than 2 minutes while I was in sight.
When this same chld was just short of 12, I was fearful when Leys wanted to walk three blocks to the store by himself!. Because I might be ticketed for leaving him unsupervised. At the same time, the city sees nothing wrong with requiring him to walk three blocks past the same store to catch the school Lets take a ride on my lady chat.
