Middle Grade

One of the eighth graders has a crush on me.

Actually, I don't know that it's a crush so much as a "gee whiz, I don't think I've ever looked at a librarian's cleavage so much in my whole entire life and isn't it great? I think I'll come up with 300 questions to ask her so that I can keep wandering into her office and then talk directly to her chest because I don't think she'll really notice, even when I ask inane things like 'where's the pencil sharpener?' even though I've been going to this school for three years now and I'm in the library about 12 times a day and I definitely know that there are at least three pencil sharpeners in a 20 square foot radius; but hey- boobs!".

With spring quickly approaching I don't want to encourage a repeat of the April '06 debacle, but really, how do you call out a kid who barely even realizes he should use deodorant every day for trying to catch a glimpse of something so impressive?

Middle schoolers in one word: clueless.

In one of my friend's classes on Friday she had them go around and say their name and one unique thing about themselves as a little ice breaker game. She got more than halfway through the sixth graders until one boy said, "Hi, my name is Eric, I'm 13, and my mustache is real".

Ok, so one more word: hilarious.

If the woman who works behind the counter at the nearby Walgreens wanted to say one unique thing about herself, she could say the exact same thing...

I'm not sure what's worse - pubescent boys staring at one's cleavage or grown men doing the same.

And by grown I mean men old enough to be your father.

Give him a break. You know how rare it is for a shitbird middle school kid to find a teacher anywhere near oggle-worthy?

I only had one that I wanted to ravage. The rest were gross.

My homeroom/spanish teacher.

Fantastic.

Sorry. This isn't helping with the creepy kid situation I'm sure.

Neither is the fact that he most likely fist kebabs while thinking about you lightly swatting his balls with a ruler.

Librarians are the new porn stars....didn't you get the memo...you're just to hot for "normal" 8th grade boys.

that's the price you pay...

plus boobs are just mystifying to them, trust me, I was at a comic convention this weekend.

Hmm. Well, thanks all for reconfirming my belief that I am destined to live a life fraught with people staring at my chest.

I guess I'll start wearing turtlenecks and leaving the knee-high boots at home.

Rather than jump in on this disturbing convo, I will ask instead if you've read these test screening reviews of HP5? I'm totally annoyed; it sounds like Lupin is barely in the movie. My favorite character gets no respect.

Seriously. My Mom reads this. I had not seen the HP reviews- I don't want to inadvertently read any spoilers- but I just have to say that I was a little bit disappointed with HP4- esp. the whole hedge maze thing at the end. (Except Voldemort, who was amazingly awesomely scary.)

Wow. I've not been hit on in years. Not even by a 13 year old. My life is so sad.

I wouldn't say I was "hit on", more like "stared down". Trust me, the opposite of fun.

At least your middle schoolers don't give you hugs that somehow manage to make their heads wind up right on your boobs. You don't think it's deliberate, do you???
