A Love Story

Tonight I have a tragic love story. Our youngest son (8th grade), has a crush on a girl in his class. The crush has been mutual. The story begins with me deciding to let go of some of my old costume jewelry. I loaded up a bag of goodies to give to charity. Well, my son got into that bag and took a piece that he liked, I did not know. He gave it to the girl he has a crush on. He secretly put it into her backpack. Well she found it and thought it was from my son, but she was too shy to ask. So she and another girlfriend cooked up a scheme. When my son saw her girlfriend wearing the piece of jewelry he got upset. She felt bad about hurting my son and told her parents. Well her parents got upset and called us. They said our son is a nice boy, but he is taking things too far. They made their daughter get on the phone and tell my son that she can only be friends nothing more and she is supposed to give the jewelry back. My son is terribly crushed and says he is finished with girls.

What a sweet yet sad story. Even though it didn't turn out the way he wanted, she will not forget it either. Who knows maybe in a few more years it will all work out.
