So what did we do to boys in the middle/high times? I don't remember writing on them...

Back in the day they used to use hickeys to mark 'em. Be thankful it's marker. :-)

VW- I don't ever remember writing on a boy. Or anyone. I think I remember using the palm of my hand to write down a phone number or something... but it would have been a girl's.

Yesterday, on the other hand, he had a 'right angle'. I said, "And what is with the triangles on your other hand?" and he said, "Oh, someone didn't believe me that there was something called a right angle, I didn't have paper, so I just drew one on my hand to show them what a right angle looked like...' Evidently he thinks he's paper too...

Pogue- GAH! No. He's going to be the kid who comes home with one too, mark my words. He was my first kid to kiss a girl and he is 4 years younger than his eldest brother. 6th grade. Under the stairs. At school.

He told me last night, "I don't get why anyone is afraid to ask a girl out. I'm not. So what if they say no? You just shrug and move on...' Talk about confidence. T would just as soon die.

I was with Mr T when I was back in HS. Somehow I managed to get a date for the Prom. Not much else though.

Weird. Our daughter's boyfriend used to write on her arm, frequently. Drove me nuts! I figured he was being territorial or something. I think he's gotten over that strange habit. Or maybe he just discovered Post It notes.

It is actually something of a relief to find out that other people do this!

We used fountain pens in school, so there was no writing on each other... might as well say we used quill pens... showing my age.

Hickies really were the way we 'marked' each other. ;)

I hope his feet don't get any bigger. It gets hard to find shoes after you hit size 11 or 12....I wear 15s.

Our oldest son has a friend who wears size 15 shoes. We also have a cat who loves shoes. Very funny to see him try to curl up inside one of Michael's shoes. He doesn't fit, but he can wedge part of himself inside, while the rest of him spills out over the top.

When I was in junior high, the girls wrote on their jeans. This was way back in the 70's. I don't remember ever writing on a boy.
