unrequited love

a few days ago we had two of our favorite friends, luke and lydia, over for pizza and a movie.  while watching the movie i overheard this exchange…

lily:  luke, can we get married?

luke:  no.

lily: (immediate body language / facial expression change . . . now with arms folded and a scowl on her face)  why?

luke:  because i’m marrying someone else.

christy:  who are you marrying, luke?

luke:  tori.

lily:  well, i’m marrying my dad.

luke:  you can’t marry your dad.

lily:  yes, i will.

(as she moves from off the floor she walks by him and glares while saying…)

i will marry you.

as lils would say, “herlarious!”  even though it was a funny conversation my heart truly did break a little for my girl.  she was genuinely hurt and sad.  luke is absolutely her number one guy, but more in a brotherly way.  who knows what the future might bring for them.  at the very least, a lifetime of friendship and happy memories of playing together.  besides, i hear this tori girl gave him her phone number and a few of the numbers were backwards and some were even missing, so lils shouldn’t be too worried about her!

    This may be the first of many conversations on this topic by our two kiddos. I just LOVE their budding relationship 🙂

  2. Love her. I’d love to see this conversation play out in high school.

    I heard Tori is a skank anyway. DonB
