And so it Begins


OK, it's been happening for a few months, but officially, boys think Rebi is cute. I'm not fond.

Yesterday, as I was driving some child somewhere, I looked in my rear view mirror and noticed that someone had written in the dirt on my rear window. That is a normal occurrence, so I wasn't worried. At the stop light, I peered more closely and realized it said, "I (heart) Re. . ." and then appeared to be hastily swiped out at the end. My heart skipped a beat. Certainly, none of her siblings took credit. We narrowed it down to a couple of boys who walk past our house after school. One has a "confirmed" crush on her and the other probably wrote it to tease his friend.

But that is not all. If only that were all.

Rebi was officially asked on her first date for a formal dance her high school is planning. Thank goodness she was able to politely decline, complete with giggles. I, on the other hand, was only able to scream in horror.

What's not to like?...look at her!

With regards to screaming, I suggest gargling Draino right before the date is due...it'll make you sound gravelly and when you yell for Rebi to come down to meet her date, it will be easier to start a white foam at your mouth...nothing says,"Bring the girl back in one piece" like a frothy, rabid mother....and so it begins.
