I liked this 🙂 I wish I could find the source…

“Girls are like apples…the best ones are at the top of the trees. The boys don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground that aren’t as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think there is something wrong with them, when, in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who’s brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree…”

    I absolutely loved this… I posted it on Facebook where a friend replied:

    “…and then some of the apples at the top of the tree start worrying that they’ll never get picked and their seeds will never grow into new trees, so they look for a boy who doesn’t look as if he’s had *too many* easy apples and they leap …”

    Or, in my case, they run away with the first boy who somehow gets to the top of the tree, without making sure he intended to be there.

    But that’s an old habit, and now I make sure the boys who reach the top of my tree are also at the top of their own trees 🙂
