7th Grade Boys & 11th Grade Girls

Are pretty much the same.

Yesterday, as I sat at my desk, two high school girls came over to spell things with the letter magnets on my overhead cupboards.

Typically, students leave "I love Alice" notes...or they just spell their name.

These girls? Oh, they went all out.

They wrote as many 4-letter words as possible (now, not curse words, just words with 4-letters).

Here's where the comparison between these girls and 7th grade boys comes in to play: among the words they wrote...


After they laughed hysterically at themselves, they sent four or five staff members over to read it too...each of them laughed, but nowhere near as loudly as the girls.

Now...who says girls mature faster than boys?
