Bubba's Harem

Before I tell my story, I want to give a huge thank you to all who stopped by for the interview with author, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne!  I'd also like to congratulate the winner of the autographed copy of her book - Jess at DMS!


Now for the story.

Yesterday, as I was walking up the street to meet my son after he had gotten off the bus, I saw a strange sight.  My boy was running as fast as he could, while a group of about four girls chased him.  They seemed to be about his age.

I stopped. Two seconds later, Bubba crashed into me.  The girls basically skidded to a stop.

"What's going on here?" I asked.

"We just wanted to talk to Bubba," one of them said.

"Oh," I said.  I turned to Bubba. "Then why did you run?"

He looked at me with a very serious expression on his face.  "Because sometimes I need a little peace and quiet.  These women are too noisy!"

  1. Oh what it is to be popular.

    Definitely a book to be had out of all these adventures.

    1. I'm not sure if I'll ever create a series or comic books from these stories. Maybe someday.

  2. I have to agree about girls being noisy since I'm a mom of 5. Bubba understands that.

  3. Ha. I was like Bubba at one point. I saw boys who wanted to talk, and I would literally hide from them.

  6. I wonder if he will think that way in years to come?

  7. There will come a time when he will want to be with girls. Then, he'll grow a little older and say, "These women are too noisy!"

    1. I think they were a little younger or the same age. But he'd better run from the older women!

  19. I wonder if he said something--good or bad--that led to their desire for a conversation.

    Love,

  21. Maybe he's at the stage where girls are still icky. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, yeah. I remember the first few grades and every girl on campus literally chasing the "cute" boy. I have no clue what we'd of done to him if we caught him.
