So, my mother's vague list of "boys you should date," has always looked a little something like this:
1) Good Catholic Boy
2) Nice Jewish Boy
She cares little about race or ethnicity, but cares almost entirely that the man I marry has religion and will treat me well (to be interpreted in a variety of ways)
I've wondered, and I still wonder, why Catholic boys are called "Good" and Jewish boys are called "Nice." Does anyone have any idea?
Anyway, after more experiences with not-so-good Catholic boys than I care to remember, I wonder if it's time to move onto the second category on the list.
Also according to my mother, Catholic and Jewish makes for a particularly compatible mix...particularly when the girl is Catholic.
We'll see, I suppose.
