Random stuff, reflections on the meaning of life and death, humour, self-deprecation, a bit of bad poetry.

“Mummy, how come every girl I like is mean to me?”

“Did something happen today?”

“Well, this girl I like wanted a number bib. I couldn’t reach them in the cupboard so I stood on a cone and it got squished.”

“And?”

“She said, “Really, Sean?”, in a mean voice, with her arms crossed.”

“Did you get it for her anyway?”

Looking sheepish, “Yes.”.

“Good boy.”

What’s endearing about this is that the girl is a head taller than him. Personally, I might have told her she was being rude as I handed her the number bib but I’m not sure that would have made a difference.

How do we deal with mean girls (and boys for that matter)? I never really mastered the art back in the day. And even now, I’m more about modelling empathy than fighting back. In the meantime, I advised him to hang with the nice girls. Hopefully he’ll figure that one out before another cone gets crushed.

    Perhaps just ill-mannered? Relations are so complex at that age. She might not realize that her attempt to act sophisticated seemed mean.

  2. Yes, she's probably trying to look cool and here's this eager boy tripping over his feet and crushing cones trying to please her.
