in his dotage

When Siena ditched her boyfriend Jim, our eyes were out on stalks.

Poor Jim, never went back on his promises and brought her lollipops every day. He also helped her with her homework. Now fucked by the fickle finger of fate, his hopes were dashed.

Bullish Wen, who always did Jim’s biding, was seething and when he stumbled upon Siena before class, he laughed trollishly at her.

“Didn’t expect such harrowing day. Initially, I thought someone pulled a fast one.” Teena slumped onto the stairs.

“Her new boyfriend is man enough to handle her tantrums or so the story goes.”

“Which class? Is he fit for her?”

” Six A. Soon he will grow a moustache.”

” A boyfriend in his dotage in this big wide world? Phooey!”
