May/December Romance

Whenever I heard the term "May/December Romance" I thought it meant that a couple started dating in May, had a great summer, then broke up in December so that no one had to buy Christmas presents.

I just found out yesterday it means that a younger person is dating an older person - LMAO!

DH and I were watching the most recent season of DEXTER on Showtime on Demand (trying to catch up since the new season is starting) and this past season there is a relationship between a 20-something and a 60-something. During a make out scene between the two of them, I was like, "OMG. Turn it off. Turn it off! *gag*" and DH said, "Wow. You can watch anything on TV, shoot-outs, people being beaten...but, put a May/December romance on the screen and you're gagging and telling me to turn it off."

LOL!

Then I was like, "Huh? What do you mean May/December romance?" and he had to explain it to me. I always wondered why people looked at me weird when I described a 6-month romance as a "May/December romance" ha ha!!! I'm such an idiot!

That's so funny! I think there was a movie December-May and the girl dies at the end of cancer or something, so technically they had only 6 mts together.


I'm disgusted every time I see Harrison Ford-Calista Flockheart (ewwww).
