#SOL18 – WIP Chapter 30

Today is my brother’s birthday.

He is having a few friends and girls over to watch a movie and play video games.

He is letting me watch and play with them.

Everyone agrees on a Harry Potter to watch.

Then we have pizza and cake.

Afterward, we play Mario Brothers.

We don’t have other video games, but our games are multi-player, so we have fun.

One of the girls who is there went to an 8th grade dance with Jacob last year.

He says she’s not his girlfriend, but just his friend that is a girl.

It started me wondering, though.

How do you know if you have a crush on a girl?

Later that night, I ask my mom this question.

She says all this sappy, gooey stuff about wanting to tell them everything and wanting to be with them all of the time.

I do think that I think about Lindsey a little bit this way, but I’m also fine if we don’t talk for a few days.

So I guess the answer is: I don’t have a crush on anyone.

I only have girls that are friends too.

  1. Jacob had “some friends and girls” over for his birthday. Love that distinction. Then, Jack says he has friends who are girls. I hope I find ou5 what happens with Lindsey.

  2. “How do you know if you have a crush on a girl?” – a question every young boy wants to know the answer to but rarely finds one he likes. Like how Jack is evolving into being a part of a group and not feeling so isolated.

  3. It’s that age-old question – can someone from the opposite sex be a friend, just a friend? I know many adults who are still sorting that out. Jack seems to have the answer…for now.

  4. Oh, when we realize that girls are our friends, even if of a different gender. Jack is too funny. I wonder if girls think this way, too. Like, having friends over and some boys. I really don’t remember this stage of my life…or maybe I blocked it out on purpose?
