Better them than me

All I can say is - better them than me.

I ran into Amanda in the tree house, and boy, she was really worried.

I have never seen her like that! She is usually so confident and in control - that's why she seems to be the natural leader when we need to get things done on projects.

But not this time - she seems distracted and not thinking straight. I wonder if it has anything to do with Oliver - or just this project Ms Moldiva asked her to do.

For once, I am glad we boys are still in the Primary school, and not in the Middle school with the older girls.

Besides, there is no way I would want to help with what they are doing. I mean, Valentine's and hearts and mushy stuff is all for the girls, really. What eleven year old boy in their right mind would want to go to a dance - especially a Valentine's dance? Give me a haunted house any day - that's much less scary!

Leave Valentine's stuff to the girls, and once again I say - better them than me.
