“Is he handsome?”
Everyone looked at me. I shrugged, “Don’t know.” (I did know. He was.) (from Chasing Redbird by Sharon Creech)
Hehe. In advance of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share this quote that represents what I think every girl has felt at least a couple of times in life. You know, when you get to the age where you notice which boys are handsome, but you don’t want to admit it to anyone so you shrug it off when they ask. I still remember being in that stage with Jon, people asking me if I liked him, saying, “We’re just friends.” Didn’t I think he was good looking? “Sure, I guess,” I’d say. But inside, I’d say, “I love him. I want to marry him and have babies with those eyes!!!” And then I’d blush and wonder if some people really can read minds and pray that they weren’t reading mine.
P.S. My son has really beautiful blue eyes. Someday all the girls will blush. 🙂
