Pick Up Lines

So Little Red Riding Hood comes home from school a couple of weeks ago and tells me that one of the little boys in her class always turns red when he talks to her. She then says, "Mom, I just don't understand it."

I do. You do. My husband and I are glad she doesn't. Yet.

So a couple of days ago, we were talking about school, and I asked if this little boy had been talking to her lately.

She said "Yeah, today he told me he loved my cursive." Trying not to bust out laughing I asked her, "He told you he "loved" as in "l-o-v-e-d" your cursive?" LRRH replied, "Yup."

He...

LOVES...

her...

cursive....

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

So there you have it people...

Third grade pick up lines.

Brilliant.


Note to V: It wasn't the Big Bad Wolf. The boyz in the hood are like her brothers.

Very cute!

I wonder if he will still be using that line in 10 years...

Oh2122 said...

Woah. Watch that one. He's smooth!

I'm wading through all my BATW day comments, and just had to stop by and say thanks. You guys are doing such an amazing thing. That was unreal!

My Sitemeter hates me now, but I could not care less!

Smooooth...

Vicki said...

How cute! This made me remember that a boy gave me six fake roses at daycare when we were in Kindergarten. What little players!

Kori said...

Awww young love what a splendid thing.

I almost had Diet Dr. Pepper shooting out my nose. Thought I'd share that with you.

Elena said...

So hilarious. I remember 3rd grade vividly. I had my first boyfriend then. You know, he wrote me a note and asked me to check yes or no if I would go with him. Then I checked yes and we never spoke again. Third grade is SO funny.

EEEEMommy said...

ROFLOL!!! What a hoot! :)
It takes me back to 5th grade. I sent one of those check yes or no notes to the 6th grader I had a crush on Jameison Smalley (I hope none of your readers is married to him!);) He returned the note with a "yes, if you give me your Trapper Keeper." The nerve. Maybe he's the reason I decided to pursue a law career, him and his clauses!

Connie said...

3rd grade is when I had my first crush. I didn't really understand it either, but nonetheless...as I read your hilarious post, I immediately flashed to "Petie P." in my mind... Too sweet. Petie P LOVED my drawing, not my cursive. That's a new one!

Karen said...

LOL .. that is so cute and so funny..

Long may that innocence continue !!

Living Balanced said...

That is hysterical! Thanks for a good laugh!

Tracy P. said...

Hilarious! I am totally picturing my 3rd grade boy telling some girl he loves her cursive. I'm dying over here!

Gombojav Tribe said...

It all starts with the handwriting.

Briana said...

That is soooo funny. That kid has the biggest crush - Loves her cursive! HAHAHA!!! You gotta meet this kid! :)

Weeksie50 said...

I got my package today. I loved it. Thank you so very much. I will post about it soon.. : ) You did such a great job..

I noticed you have signed up for the Secret Santa as well.. I love Swaps. They are so fun..

Lula! said...

Wow...
And I thought, "Hey baby, I love the way you tackle those monkey bars on the playground!" was suave.

"I love your cursive" wins. Hands down.

Amy said...

Oh wonderful, the love affairs begin! It's cute how they are at this age, I just dread the teenage years, yikes!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Can you just hear his internal conversation?

Oh... there she is... should I hit her?? No.. oh... um.... I'll tell her I like her... shoes? No.... um... her.. hair? No... um... oh she's getting closer... Um... I love your backpack? Oh... no... um.. oh, she's almost to me um.. um...um...... um.... um....

"Little Red Riding Hood, I love your Cursive"

WHAT?? WHAT DID I JUST SAY??? I LOVE YOUR CURSIVE??? ARGH!!!!!!!!!

Tracy P. said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEBBIE!!!!

Hope it's wonderful, just like you!

Becky Welch said...

That is great!!!! Oh I miss teaching and hearing those things! Wait - I don't miss the teaching, but I miss the kids!

Sniz said...

Now THAT'S original!!!

Maybe he'll work in an office someday and will have the chance to use it on the receptionist whose name just happens to be Pam. I'm just saying.

Sharon (sk) said...

HAHAHA!! Love it!! :)

Heather said...

Awwww...that is TOO cute!!

Melissa Lester said...

Hee-hee! A boy in Mary Ashley's K4 class has a crush on her. His mom tells me they hear everything about her. She said, "I know her shirt had green polka dots on it last week." She is completely unaware of this, and when we look at all the class photos on the bulletin board, never remembers his name! I am not going to share his crush with her, but I'm trying to help her at least remember his name! Oh, young love, too sweet!

Katy Lin :) said...

lol! how cute :)

Michelle said...

Must be true love, no fling loves 3rd grade cursive.

HeathahLee said...

My son told his "crush" (that he would not admit to me in a million years!)that she was the best burper ever! I'm tellin' you...8 year olds are just tooooo smooth!

Jenni said...

I love that you don't tell her. My fourth grader has a boy for one of her two best friends and she gets teased all the time about being his girl friend. So I can see why you'd want to avoid that as long as humanly possible. But crushes at that age are very sweet.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

A guy's gotta start somewhere.

Might as well be with penmanship.

JourneytoFamily said...

Hilarious!

Leslie said...

That's adorable!

Mandy said...

funny - that's the same line my husband used on me.

Piggy said...

Before you know it, they'll be sharing crayons! :D

veronica said...

Funny, Love to hear those! I am not sure "The Big Bad Wolf" would ever use that pick up line! At least I hope not

Tiffany said...

Hysterical!

Loves her cursive. Smooth talker.

Kat said...

I love it. And I love Lizzy's comment about the internal dialog. I wonder if he is hating himself for saying that! And I really love that she doesn't get it. Both of my girls are clueless about the antics of the boys that "love" them. And they have quite a following!

Jennifer P. said...

I"m sure in high school it will be "I love your blog :)".

Caroline said...

What's he going to say next? He'll probably break into song...

"Heaven...must be missin' an angel..."

Geez.

I never write in cursive - that way I will avoid cheesy pickup lines by 3rd graders.

Michelle said...

Oh that is precious! You've absolutely got to capture that somewhere so that she can experience this memory someday when she, too, understands.

Z's Mom said...

Oh how cute!!! That is too sweet!

Mama Wheaton said...

Happy Birthday, Happy, Happy Birthday

Rhea said...

That's actually an awesome pick-up line!! I'm impressed. My 11 yr old will NOT talk to the girl he likes. And my 6 yr old is so NOT into girls yet...but I think they chase him.

Rhea said...

BTW, Happy Birthday!! A little hot tub gal told me...

Kat said...

Happy Birthday to you!! It is just the week for bloggy birthdays. Eat lots of cake!

Urban Mom said...

Oh how cute! He's likes her and can't figure out what to do, and he's trying to come up with something nice to say. He did pretty well, actually! (i've had worse lines... we all have)

Elena said...

Have a really great birthday!! So glad we crashed at your place for once. :)

Vicki said...

Happy Birthday To You! Happy birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Debbie!!!!! Happy Birthday to you!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Happy Birthday Pooh Bear - I have a present for you at my blog!!!

Cairo Typ0 said...

That's so sweet!! In a few years she can look back on that as probably the *best* pickup line she'll ever hear. *sigh* :) :)

Julie said...

that was so funny!

Debbie said...

This is such a great story. You gotta love those lines. They would have worked with me when I was 8. Just found your blog.
