Aidan has had a crush on a girl in his class all school year. He could not work up enough courage to ask her to dance at the first middle school dance (she asked him at the end of a song) and she was sick at the second dance which was a major disappointment. The next big chance to declare his love? Valentine’s Day. He asked me to get her a box of chocolates, and he and his buddy Sam devised a plan for how to get the chocolates in the special girl’s cubby.
Now for the note. The outside read “Don’t read until you get home.” The poem inside (yes of course I read it!) went like so:
Roses are red, violets are blue. They are prepossessing and gorgeous just like you. Your admirer, Aidan
Now, I admit I had to look up the prepossessing word. What about you?
