Ugh. Boys. Martha is getting the first tastes of what boys are all about and how gross they are. When I was a teenager, I was very nervous around guys because they were crude, leering, predatory-like, etc. I only liked one boy because he was gentle and polite. He had a good upbringing and was of well bred stock. The type most girls found boring and went for the bad boys. But this guy drew girls like a moth to the flame. He had his pick of girls but it was never me until college. By college, I realized he was not my type but we remained friends. Thank God guys eventually outgrow this phase otherwise I’d probably never married my husband and had my sons. I hope my sons were not that crude when they were teenagers. My older is now married with a toddler.
