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."

Go Leo.

I love this story. Love it. So Leo, even at that age. Not that he hit women, mind you. But so funny!

I love the story as well, obviously. I also think it's funny that Mom said she's tried to tell the story several times to people and no one thought it was nearly as funny as she did. Go figure.
