Sugar and spice...
Middle child is in love.
Well, he's been in love for a while with a pretty little girl in his senior infants class. But even when you're six, love rarely runs smoothly. He confessed that a few of her games were 'a little obvious'. (I believe he was referring to the playground variety, rather than 'Men are from Mars, Women from Venus' style games.)
He looked serious and shook his head.
"She just sits there." he said. "Maybe she's thinking."
Then he uttered a sentence that must be hardwired into the male brain.
"I have no idea what girls think about."
I nearly crashed the car from laughing. I informed him that this question had troubled male minds for millennia. He nodded sagely.
He was silent and contemplative for a little while. Then he piped up.
"It's probably unicorns."
A better guess then some men :)
