The last time I was able to sit down and chat with my mother, she told me the following little anecdote about my brother Tom, aka Leo:
When Leo was 7 or 8 years old he had a huge crush on a pretty little girl named Janine. Of course, being my brother, he was too shy to actually speak to her, so instead he lived with his 8-year-old fantasies while being snubbed from afar.
However, one day he came home from school extremely excited and said, "Mom, guess what! Janine talked to me today!"
"Really, what did you do?" Mom asked.
"Well, I didn't know what to do so I hit her."
