to answer the following question I get up every morning

00:20

in a nineteen year old look back all right in

00:24

point seven on the list What has compunction mean Compunction

00:29

and hear the potential answers Puncture wound All right well

00:36

we need to check out all of number seven to

00:38

get this one Right All right Well yeah this old

00:41

schools or be it sounds a little cryptic to modern

00:43

ears but the process of elimination and will save the

00:46

day All right first let's cross be off the list

00:50

Though the word compunction does sound a bit like puncture

00:53

This is definitely not what the speaker has gone for

00:55

What a relief If puncture were the meeting then the

00:57

speaker would be advising that relationship with old ladies or

01:00

better than with young ladies because there are less puncture

01:04

wounds involved Yikes All right well we feel like it's

01:07

solid advice to keep puncture wounds out of every relationship

01:27

option c sort of makes sense Ruining a young lady's

01:31

reputation by having an affair with her would surely give

01:33

her a bad case of the bitter Reflections but number

01:37

four is the one on the list that goes into

01:39

reputation Woes not number seven The best answers option A

01:43

compunction is a feeling of uneasiness about whether something is

01:46

right or wrong So the author is telling his friend

01:50

that it won't need to feel guilty if he has

01:52

an affair with an old woman because she'll be grateful

01:54

while a young woman will be hurt if the friend

01:57

refuses tio marry her Wow ben franklin We can just

02:02

imagine what the ladies on the view would have to 00:02:04.98 --> [endTime] say about this boy You yeah yeah
