What Do Kids Know?

31 Aug

Smart GirlI finally decided not to call or text, but to email the object of my infatuation.  I composed my note carefully and was then stuck.  To admit missing him or not to admit missing him?  Tell him, I thought to myself.  I needed a second opinion, though, so I showed my  nearby 11-year-old-niece the email.

“Cut the part about missing him,“ she advised, “you’re gonna look like a fiend.” 

“But what if I am a fiend?”

“You’re not supposed to let him know that.”

I cut the part about missing him.
