But how adorable. Which is why, despite all its aggravations, I continue to teach 10 and 11 year olds. One Valentine's Day in particular comes to mind. I watched an adorable young man hand out his cards to the young ladies of the class; I could hear him say to each one, "Don't get excited. My mother made me do this." Right.

That is absolutely beautiful that he tried to attract the girls by belly-flopping into the pool. Meanwhile, probably just as well he doesn't figure out he's on the wrong tack for a while longer, he's only 11 isn't he? You could lead him down the wrong path for a few years, given that he is already good-looking and charming and cool; tell him girls LOVE boys who can burp the alphabet and crack armpit farts

The interesting part is that he is starting to get to that age where He Knows Everything, so any advice would be lost on him for quite a spell.

The mental image of all that belly flopping brought a smile to my face. Ah, youth.
