Oh, to be young!
Valentines Day at Elementary School? Remember?
Never a pain for the, shall we call them, privileged.
She is only 8, but at 8 she is nobody's fool.
Her long waist-length hair is glossy, straight and light ash brown. Surprising, since her mother is Japanese.
We still haven't figured out if she is shy, or a snob,
but this we do know, she is model material~ thin, tall, erect.
We haven't figured out yet if she is proud,
or merely trying to go low-profile with as straight and narrow a shadow as she can muster.
She has been a fan of fashion since she was 3. Sleek. Classy. No frills.
Her almond shaped eyes somehow fail to look Japanese. It's those gold flecks that make her eyes match her American hair exactly.
Boys can't seem to get more than a glance from her.
But one brave boy sent her a "note" valentine just yesterday.
"Will you be my valentine?" it said. "Circle Yes or No."
She was so proud of that valentine outreach!
"So.....Sachiko. Did you circle Yes or No?"
Sachiko smiled. "I circled or."
He dad is so happy.
That's one daughter he doesn't have to worry too much about.
Do you like my blog? Circle Yes or No.
Ahhhhh, the or's have it!
But I love you anyway.
