As my boys get closer to the dating years, I try to tell them what girls MIGHT be like.....
because I clearly am not the norm...
In first grade. I had a crush on this red head boy named David. Every time we drove by his house, I would say "there's David's house". At recess, he would play with cars in the dirt under the pine trees. I would sit nearby (like a stalker) and watch the dried ketchup flake off his face when he would wipe his runny nose with his sleeve. One day, David gave me a plastic ring that he got at the doctor the day before.....
that embarrassed me.
That was the end of David.
From second to sixth grade, I had a boyfriend that wore tough skin jeans, cowboy boots and a big belt buckle. Jeremy never talked to me.
In sixth grade, he yelled across the lunch room that I had cutie curls....
Not cootie curls (that might have actually saved our relationship), he yelled CUTIE curls and wore a weird smile that said "you are cute". I picked up my bologna and frisbeed it at him. The teacher said I was done with lunch for the day and must go back to the classroom.
I'll tell you what I was done with
In seventh grade, we had boy/girl gym class. My good friend, Mike, and I always teamed up for all the activities. He was so much fun.
One day we were sitting on the bleachers and he told our friends the two of us were going to the black/gold (our school colors) dance.
I punched him in the shoulder and gave him a dirty look.
That was the end of a fun gym class.
When I was in high school, I went to the movies ONCE with this guy. He ruined the movie because he kept staring at me. It was a freakin good action movie!
I went to dinner ONCE with this other guy. When he took me home, he walked me to the door. He leaned in for a kiss and I quickly moved. He rang the doorbell and my dad opened the door.....made me laugh.
Thank goodness Jeff was a smart guy. He knew how to get me!
I guess my boys are as smart as their dad. They will know what to do to get their girl!
