Paul Smith (name changed to protect the innocent) 4th grade, Missouri City, Texas.
One day during social studies, in 4th grade, I received a note from Paul Smith that stated he wanted to go steady with me. Delighted, I accepted. Four hours later he broke up with me(via note) and laughed with his friends.
Apparently, Paul and his friends had nothing better to do, which explains why Paul is still living in Missouri City, in , albeit, a much fancier house, with a much blonder wife.
Thanks Paul, for showing me the importance of regard and respect. Lesson learned. I was a keeper. I still am.
