It’s A Mystery To Me

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Mar-13-2003

Today is a red letter day for The Girl : her ‘steady boyfriend’ is coming over after school to see the puppies.

I have sworn on a stack of Bibles, crossed my heart and hoped to die, that I will never reveal his identity to anyone. And so I shan’t. Even though it is the best known secret in her school.

Whatever.

So last night she came into my little room of my own ( football was on again last night ) where I was fiddling about on the computer to say good night. She sat in the big chair in the corner of the room, put on her let’s-have-a-mother-daughter- talk face, and asked me- very politely, I might add- not to be silly today when Master X comes over.

I promised that I wouldn’t be silly, but I have the nagging suspicion that she is reaching that age when the mere fact that I breath in and out is considered ‘silly’.

I shall try to stay up in my room of my own while he is here. Seems the safest thing to do.

  1. Catherine Said,

    Well you clearly have a history of being ‘silly’ or the poor child would not have had to plead with you so. Do tell, what on earth do you get up to when you are ‘silly’?

    The dilemma – I hope you slept. You know, its not either Ajax or Arsenal – I’ve looked at the permutations that Arseblogger linked to, and 5 of the 9 of them involve us both going through. So you all you have to hope for is for both teams at least drawing.

  2. sue Said,

    I have no idea what she means, truly.

    Han indeed told me the same thing : we must both win. He rather insists upon an Ajax- Arsenal final.

  3. 'bel Said,

    perhaps it’s the anorak/umbrella combination on the front page of the paper that has frightened her.

  4. sue Said,

    Hmmm, you may have a point there, ‘bel.

  5. Morgaine Said,

    Well, at least she’s asking you not to behave ‘silly’ which means she still has hopes you are ABLE not to act ‘silly’ *grin*

  6. kismet Said,

    so, how’d it go? is the boy cute? ;)
