Me: So have you written to Lauren yet?
Alex: Yeah, I wrote her as soon as I got home. I think she will get it tomorrow or something.
Me: When did you mail it?
A: Uh. The day I got back from camp. Uh. Monday. I mailed it on Monday.
Me: Its great to have a friend.
A: Well, we are more than just friends.
A: Yeah. And she's in eigth grade!! And the whole fourth grade pretty much knows it now too. Because I told them. And she is in Eigth Grade! They can't even make fun of me too much for it.
Me: The heart doesn't know how old it is, that is true. But be sure you are respecting her honey. I am sure you liked her for more reasons than just that she is in eigth grade.
A: Oh yeah. Definitely. We are "BF/GF"
Me: So are you in love?
A: Uh. I guess so. That is what BF/GF means.
Me: Ah. Did you kiss her?
Me: Did you want to?
A: Uh. I think I am gonna wait on that for a little while.
Me: Maybe next year huh.
Me: Does SHE know she is your girlfriend?
A: I wrote her a note.
Me: You did?
A: Yeah. I gave it to her outside the nurse's office. Then I walked away and went to my cabin to pack to come home.
Me: Did she say anything?
A: About what?
Me: About the note.
A: No. She didn't freak out or act crazy or anything. She already told me she liked me. Before. Like, days before.
Me: I see! Well honey, that is really special and I am really happy for you.
A: Yeah. And she is in eigth grade!!
