Love, Innocent Style

October 21, 2005

And now for something completely different. If you’ve seen this before, it bears reading.

These are answers to the question: What is Love? posed to 4-8 year olds.

“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.”
Rebecca- age 8

“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on
shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.”

your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.”

opening presents and listen.”

still friends even after they know each other so well.”

him alone all day.”

  1. I’m a little bit confused as to why this is a comment for “Love, Innocent Style”.


  2. That comment wasn’t a real comment (and that is why it was removed). It is the latest in the new wave of “spam” hitting the blogs. Occasionally readers of the blog will notice phony comments that are really just advertisements in disguise. We are working to prevent them from doing that.


  3. I have seen a few of these before and I think they are wonderful and enlightening! Thanks for sharing!
