I remember when I was 13 (very very long time ago) I had a crush on this boy...I went to an all girls school and he went to an all boys school. I wanted him to know that I liked him so I wrote a letter to him and mailed it to him in care of the school. When I think about it now I can't believe how stupid I was and the chances I took. My son is now 12 and as you can imagine I am very afraid of girls like me on his behalf. But I haven't forgotten what it felt like to be 13 and the object of my crush *dreamy eyes*
OMG Shell ... that was a very 'teen' thing you did ...
... fortunately or unfortunately I never did quite have the courage to something like that ... but ... I;ve done a lot of "staring-at-him-dreamy-eyed-from-afar" stuff ...
Care to tell us what was the reaction from the boy / his school ??? ... am really curious !
