Tall, skinny, floppy brown hair falling into his eyes. Big glasses, bad clothes and incredible musical talent. What's not to love? Unfortunately, my best friend thought the same thing.
One Valentine's Day, we tried to out do each other in giving him the best card. I spent many hours creating the greatest card I could come up with - considering I had some red paper, a white doily and sparkles. I put all the heart and soul into that card that a 9 year old girl can muster. And I shyly put it on his desk when no one was looking.
She gave him a two foot tall card in the shape of a clown. I couldn't compete with that.
