The Romantic Encounter

You may recall that a few days ago, my son opened a fortune cookie that had the message, "You will soon have a romantic encounter."  I was slightly concerned, but really didn't think he'd seriously have one.

I was wrong.  The boy now informs me that he thinks he has a girlfriend.

"What?' I said, hardly believing my ears.

"Yeah.  In school today, we were allowed to pick one person to hug.  A girl picked me.  She's really nice!"

Um. Okay.

So this revelation came yesterday.  Today, I went into the classroom to help the teacher.  The kids were sitting on the carpet as I walked in.  I noticed my boy was sitting next to a girl.

Hmmm. 

Then, when the teacher walked over to me to give me my instructions, I glanced out of the corner of my eye and saw my boy playing rock, paper, sissors with this girl.

Now I know I'm in trouble!



One announcment before I close:  Tomorrow, September 1st at 10:00 AM EST, I'll be a guest on this radio show reading my book, That Mama is a Grouch.  If you want to hear the story, or listen to me yap, please stop by!

    1. Yes, indeed! The show went well. I think it's archived, so you can probably go to the link and listen to it whenever you want.

  5. Young love is so sweet. I was crazy for a boy in first grade and used to chase him around the playground.
