I work at a summer camp for kids age 5-12, many of whom are naturally overinterested in the love lives of we counselors. At lunch today:
Ten-Year-Old Girl: You’re dating Counselor #1, right?
Nine-Year-Old Girl: Is she your girlfriend?
Counselor #2: Uh, yes. Yes, she is.
Ten-Year-Old Girl: Have you kissed her yet?
Nine-Year-Old Girl: Have you proposed?
Counselor #2: Whoa, slow down! You’re asking about kissing and suddenly I have to propose?
Nine-Year-Old Girl: Have you hugged her?
Ten-Year-Old Girl: I’ve hugged. I’ve been hugging since the fifth grade. [deliberate pause] And I’m in the fifth grade.
