What's making you feel bitter-sweet today?

Well yesterday,..

I used the wallet tool Sundae gave me. It was a moment.

Minifob has a crush on a girl at school. A couple months ago he freely admitted he thought she was cute, and was surprised and chagrined when the group of girls she was with started giggling like mad.

Today, he had a friend pass on the message that he liked her, and her response was that she knew. I asked if she said she liked him back, because that's pretty important information, and he said he doesn't want to ask her that part just yet. "Timing's pretty important, you know?"

Yeah, son. It is.

This thing about parenting, where you know you're going to have to watch the inevitable parts of life that suck, like heartbreak (maybe not this one, but eventually)... goddamn.

Clodfobble, my friend, you have a flair for understatement.
