Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Friday, April 7

Through a child's eyes

What do most people do on a date?

Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
- Lynnette, age 8

On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
- either Mike or Martin, age 10

What would you do on a first date that was turning sour?

I would run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.
- Craig, age 9

What falling in love is like

Like an avalanche where you have to run for your life.
- Roger, age 9

If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long.
- Leo, age 7

Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I have been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me.
- Bobby, age 8

I am not rushing into being in love. I am finding fourth grade hard enough.
- Regina, age 10

I think you are supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful.
- Harlan, age 8

Why lovers often hold hands

They want to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good money for them.
- Dave, age 8

What people are thinking when they say "I love you"

The person is thinking: Yeah, I really do love him. But I hope he showers at least once a day.
- Michelle, age 9

How can you tell if two adults eating dinner at a restaurant are in love?

Just see if the man picks up the check. That is how you can tell if he is in love.
- John, age 9

Lovers will just be staring at each other and their food will get cold. Other people care more about the food.
- Brad, age 8

It is love if they order one of those desserts that are on fire. They like to order those because it is just like how their hearts are ... on fire.
- Christine, age 9

Why does love happen between two particular people?

No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That is why perfume and deodorant are so popular.
- Jan, age 9

If you want to be loved by somebody who is not already in your family, it does not hurt to be beautiful.
- Jeanne, age 8

It isn't always just how you look. Look at me. I am handsome like anything and I have not got anybody to marry me yet.
- Gary, age 7

Beauty is skin deep. But how rich you are can last a long time.
- Christine, age 9

How can you make a person fall in love with you?

Tell them that you own a whole bunch of candy stores.
- Del, age 6

Don't do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention, but attention ain't the same thing as love.
- Alonzo, age 9

One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it's something she likes to eat. French fries usually works for me.
- Bart, age 9

One of you should know how to write a check. Because, even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills.
- Ava, age 8

How a person learns how to kiss

You learn it right on the spot when the gushy feelings get the best of you.
- Doug, age 7

It might help to watch soap operas all day.
- Carin, age 9

When is it okay to kiss someone?

When they are rich.
- Pam (we don't know if it is short for Pamela), age 7

The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.
- Curt, age 7

It is never okay to kiss a boy. They always slobber all over you ... That is why I stopped doing it.
- Jean, age 10

You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, because she will want to have videos of the wedding.
- Jim, age 10

Never kiss in front of other people. It is a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you. But if nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours.
- Kelly, age 9

The rule goes like this: if you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
- Howard, age 8

Is it better to be single or married?

It is better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
- Anita, age 9

Single is better, for the simple reason that I wouldn't want to change no diapers. Of course, if I did get married, I would just phone my mother and have her come over for some coffee and diaper-changing.
- Kirsten, age 10

It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I am just a kid. I don't need that kind of trouble.
- Kenny, age 7

How would the world be different if people didn't get married?

There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?
- Kelvin, age 8

You can be sure of one thing -- the boys would come chasing after us just the same as they do now.
- Roberta, age 7

What is the proper age to get married?

Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.
- Camille, age 10

No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married.
- Freddie, age 6

Eighty-four! Because at that age, you don't have to work anymore, and you can spend all your time loving each other in your bedroom.
- Judy, age 8

Once I am done with kindergarten, I am going to find me a wife!
- Tom, age 5

How do you decide who to marry?

You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
- Alan, age 10

No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.
- Kirsten, age 10

How would a marriage work?

Tell your wife that she looks pretty even if she looks like a truck."
- Ricky, age 10

How can a stranger tell if two people are married?

Married people usually look happy to talk to other people.
- Eddie, age 6

You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
- Derrick, age 8

What do you think your mom and dad have in common?

Both don't want no more kids.
- Lori, age 8

How to make love endure

Spend most of your time loving instead of going to work.
- Tom, age 7

Don't forget your wife's name ... That will mess up the love.
- Roger, age 8

Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash.
- Randy, age 8
