It's official. I'm a 'heartthrob' -- to all toddlers and teens. i do love kids but why, oh why can't they be grown men, for a change?! "go with me to the zoo, or maybe to chuck e. cheese's?", asked a very hopeful, dreamy-eyed 4 yr old -- then offered me the only drink he ever knew in his young life... milk. he was looking at me so intensely that i had to smile and break it to him gently, "well, maybe next time -- when you're older". "oh boy, what a ladies' man," i told his mother while he gazed at me with stars in his eyes. before they left church, he demanded to be hugged, and coaxed me one last time to 'go out with him.' sigh. well at least, i still get to be noticed... c'est la vie!

To a philosopher all news, as it is called, is gossip, and they who edit and read it are old women over their tea.
