The Ones Who've Made Me Giggle...

Starting week two of what we are thankful for, we’re looking at boys. And I realized from about the time I was ten years old, I’ve been thankful for the ones who’ve make me blush and giggle.

Either with a comment just slightly racier or more personal than I was expecting, or a lascivious wag of the brow, or a gaze-into-my-soul stare. They were the boys who made the long, boring hours of school worthwhile, who I’d think of while blow-drying my hair or trying on outfits in a department store dressing room. They surprised me, they delighted me, they kept me on my toes. And they are the ones I remember best from my teen days, some even with snippets of dialogue attached.

Anyone else go gaga over those bold ones? Or what type of boy are you thankful for?

I hate to say this..but I was thankful for any boy that actually talked to me! I was so shy and afraid of them as if they were a different species. Today, I realize they are!

Since kindergarten I liked the popular boy, the guy everyone else liked. That changed, of course.

Oh yes, I'd take a boy who could make me laugh anyday!

Janie, it's hard for me to imagine you as shy!

Thanks Simone & Steph...yeah, I suspect all our eyes would be on a cute, funny one, huh?

So true, Tina! It was always the bold ones who caught my attention. :) :)

Janie, that's hilarious!

Let's see ... I typically never liked a guy who liked me first. And since the guys I did like didn't ever go for me, I was stuck in a perpetual Boy Drought. It's come back around, though, because now I'm married with three boys of my own!

Thanks Marley & Kelly!

And Wendy, "Boy Drought"! How's that for your next book title? I'd buy it!
