The Agonies of Love - 4th Grade Style

Wilma observed her 9-year-old son interacting with his good friend, Lizzy, at the Middle School basketball game. While their sisters played ball, Lizzy and Eli shared popcorn, laughed together, and shot goals during halftime. They always seemed to have so much fun during ballgames and at their sisters' practices. After the game, Wilma teased Eli, "You should dump Zahra and ask Lizzie out." Eli and Zahra had been "going together" for several months. Eli solemnly answered his mother, "Mom, I'm just not good at dumping girls. (sigh) I just have to wait til they dump ME."

In this true story, the names have been changed to protect this writer from the wrath of grandchildren.
