young love

Last night was Lemony Teen's prom. Her date, a Very Sweet Boy, brought her flowers and wore a pink tie that matched her dress perfectly. They both looked so grown up in their fancy clothes that his mother I were both a little teary-eyed as they walked out the door.

Mr. Lemony wasn't teary-eyed at all, but he did get a murderous look on his face with the Very sweet boy put his hand on his daughter's hip. Very Sweet Boy's mother chuckled and said, "He's crazy about her, you know."

She called me at midnight and sounded happier than I've ever heard her sound when she said, "He danced with me all night, Mum. It was like I was the only girl in the room."

Very Sweet Boy indeed.
