The males in our family have been concerned about keeping undesirable suitors away from the females in our family. They're very protective. But I don't think they have anything to worry about.
Leah tells the story of one young man who repeatedly asked her out, and she finally told him, "(Name hidden to protect the young man's pride), I wouldn't go out with you if you were the last guy on earth."
Then Abbie told me this story yesterday:
She and a few friends were eating dinner in the dining hall when a couple of guys came over and sat down with them. One particularly juvenile male kept pretending his banana was a phone. He would talk a bit, then shove the banana next to someone's ear to make them talk on it. He finally made the mistake of shoving it next to Abbie's ear. She snatched the banana away and held it poised to snap it open.
Juvenile-boy said, "If you open that banana, I'll never speak to you again!"
Abbie said, "Promise?" and shoved half the open banana in her mouth.
I don't think she needs any help.
Be thankful ~
