How do you let someone know that you like them?
Apparently, if you're in the 5th grade, the answer is to throw crudites at them. My 11-year old niece has a boy in her class that she refers to as her stalker and he made a big show of hurling vegetables at her during one lunch period. He has continually professed his love for her, but she's not having it. During his latest show of undying affection she saw carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower fly by her head. As we all know, crudites is never complete without the dip. The piece de resistance was a nice bit of Ranch dressing. Luckily, she ducked so that there was no Ranch in her hair.
I tell ya men, you really know how to make a girl feel good! When queried about reasoning behind the veggie shower, one of my niece's friends responses was "Maybe he wants you to eat healthy." Yeah, that's one way to try to get a woman to eat healthy. Not the most proven method, but the kid is only 9. As the song by Mickey and Sylvia says "Love is strange."
I'm just glad that my mine has grown out of the throwing crudites stage. I don't think I'd want to see Ranch dressing flying by my head!
