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!"
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.
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!
