“I sure do wish some cute guys would move into our neighborhood,” Mary Ann sighed as she flounced into her bedroom. Her best friend, Lynn, and her little sister, Mitzi, trailed along after her. They kicked off their flip flops and sprawled on her pillow-covered bed.
“What’s wrong with Jerry?” asked Lynn.
“Oh, he’s just so dull. All he talks about is football, and my eyes start to glaze over when he goes on and on about tackles and touchdowns and extra points and stuff.”
“How about Tim? He’s really a neat guy,” said Lynn
“He's okay if you don’t mind how he’s always making jokes about everything.”
“Will is the smartest boy in our class, and I think he’s kinda cute. What about him?”
“Have you ever noticed how big his ears are?”
“Now, Mary Ann, Don’t you remember how our Sunday School teacher said that we’re all made in the image of God? You’re just being too picky.”
“Well, I was just wishing we had someone who is really outstanding to move in.”
“Richard is,” piped up Mitzi, who had been quiet until now.
“Oh,” said Mary Anne, “You just like Richard cause he plays Frisbee with you. You’re just five. You’ll have to wait till you’re thirteen to recognize a really outstanding boy. Now Justin over there,” she said, pointing to a poster on the wall, “and Scotty on Idol. Now that’s what I call outstanding.”
Their discussion was interrupted by Mary Ann’s mom, who stuck her head inside the door, and asked, “Did you know Richard is out standing on the front porch? You need to go to the door.”
“Told you so…” said Mitzi.
