What kind of a man am I?

Yesterday, I was riding home on the BART, absolutely exhausted from sitting all day in the same place doing the same thing over and over again on almost no sleep. Hanging on the train were posters for the Avon Breast Cancer Walk. It is a weekend of fundraising activities for breast cancer research.

I thought that might be a nice thing to do – raise some money for breast cancer research in honor of my mother. I’ve never done anything like that – seems like the kind of thing a son might do.

But then I had a second thought, which spoiled the whole thing.

I thought: I bet that would be a great place to meet women.

So now would I be going to honor my mother or to meet women? The catch, though, is that it might not even be a conflict of interest, provided she is Jewish.

So if I do this now, will I be doing it to honor my mother or to meet women? And to do it just to meet women would be pretty scummy. But once I’ve had the idea that it may be a possibility, isn’t that the only reason I’d be doing it?
