The Romance Saga Part III

By: Casey Crow

As you know, for the past few weeks, I've been secretly reporting on the boy crush saga of young love.

Today, 9 (daughter in question) would like to convey the qualities we should be looking for in men.

1. He makes your heart pound.
9 explained on Show and Tell Day the crush made her heart pound when he said he liked to be goofy. Why? Read on...

2. You must have things in common.
9 also likes to be goofy. (Her mama refers to "goofy" as "drama queen") Plus, 9 and her crush love dogs and other animals.

3. He must tell good jokes.
That's true, we all love a man with a good sense of humor.

4. He must give good presents.
Well, duh.

I went to lunch with 7 the other day and The Crush waved at ME from three seats down. ME! I was quiet excited until 9 explained the following to me:

1. He was trying to impress me because if Mama likes him, she will encourage the relationship.
 9 did not actually use the word "relationship." Instead she smacked her hands together demonstrating the boyfriend/girlfriend bond.

2. Mamas must act "cool," otherwise The Crush will know something is up.

3. Mamas must NOT be too nosey.

9 also imparted this logic:
1. Bat your lashes at a boy.
It clues him in that you like him, but very subtly.

2. Have daydreams about The Crush.
But not while the teacher is talking. Mama gets mad when the grades slip.

Stayed tuned…
