“Getting to Third Base”

Published: Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 09:17 AM.

There were quite a few “She told him’s” and “He told her’s.” I had a hard time believing Forest really said “Wow” that many times, but he may very well have. Bonnie was doing her part to stoke the fire.

To read the words of a 10 year-old girl puts a lot of things in perspective. In the last paragraph alone, she went into great detail on her outfit she wore for her school picture.

“I wore my white sweater and my skirt with the ponies on it and your greenish blue scarf and white soft balls on the white roping.”

I’m not sure about the “soft balls,” I think they were like pom poms on a collar or something.

Anyway, she went on to say that when she walked up to Mrs. Jones’ desk… I stopped at this point and could see a 10 year-old girl doing some sort of runway modeling job with skirt ponies galloping in mid-air, helping her float her way to the teacher’s desk at the front of the room.

Of course, Bonnie was watching this, taking notes, keeping score and waiting for Forest’ reaction; it was her job.

Bonnie told her that she heard Forest say out loud, “Wow.”
