Girl Code

Last night, as I attempted to assist Miss Priss with her Spelling homework, she made every effort to distract me from seeing her task through to completion.

She wanted to talk about the spies who had installed software on our computer. She wanted to talk about her new career goal, which is to be a singer. (Last week it was horse vet.) Clearly though, she was not satisfied with mommy's short answers and decided to move on to another topic.

"Mommy, do you know what girl code is?"

Okay, I had to laugh. But that's only because in my cynical adult mind I was thinking, Yeah, I know what it is. In high school, it means all boyfriends are to be tossed aside for your girlfriend. In college, it means that your girlfriend has the right to then DATE all of these boyfriends. And after college, it means even less than that...

But I was curious what it meant to an eight year old. So amused, I played along, "No honey, I don't know. What is girl code?"

I knew she'd have a matter-of-fact answer, and she did, "You use the girl code when you like a boy."

"I see. How does it work?"

"Easy. You just tell your best friend that you like him, and then you get to be mean to him together."


I like her definition better.

Yeah, she's sure to kick ass in that department. Too bad she's MIA.

Is She?

Heh...I'm loving your child already. I do believe that she and my eldest must have went to the same language school.

Geaux Miss Priss!

I forget: what does the little wading bird represent? Girls who talk in code?

Just to be wicked I'm going to let my young'uns in on this. Guys need to protect themselves early these days.
