Over dinner, Stephen told us what he did at school.
“Well, during recess I help my friend J because all the girls chase him, so I help him by chasing the girls back.”
“Why do the girls chase J?”
“Because T likes him!”
“Oh, and that’s what girls do when they like you? They chase you?”
Stephen shrugged. “I don’t know. I just know the girls chase J because T likes him, so I help him chase the girls.”
“How do you know when a girl likes you? How does J know T likes him?”
“I guess she told her friends and they told him. You know a girl likes you because she tells you. Maybe she wants to kiss him, so he has to run away.”
Eric asked, “What would you do if a girl kissed you?”
Stephen’s eyes widened with concern and he shook his head. “I would just tell my teacher!”
Good plan, Stephen! Keep the girls away!
