That was supposed to be a secret!

A conversation I had with two 3rd grade boys today (mind you, they are 9 years old):

* Names have been changed.

Patrick: "Sam told everyone I liked Sally!"

Sam: "But you told me you liked her."

Patrick: "But that was supposed to be a secret! You know she doesn't like me back anyways!"

Sam: "Oh..."

My moment today was spent trying to hold back laughter (although I felt quite bad for Patrick), scratching my head and thinking, they really start liking girls when they are 9??? I thought I was done with the boy-girl drama after leaving my 8th grade students!
