I told my mom about you
and i'm pretty sure she was
more surprised about the fact that i was
interacting with The Opposite Sex
than the fact that it was you in particular

So that's a good start, right?

I mean, I didn't tell her very much.
i kept out the fact that you were
the one who hit my car the other day
and that you snuck me into
an abandoned hotel one time

I also avoided the details of your
“Beard”, you know, the one that you just
can’t quite figure out what to do with?
and the fact that you only like
vulgar rap music

I didn’t exactly boast about
your poor hygiene
or your tendency to skip class
and I kept out the part about
you being unemployed

And most of all i avoided telling her
that you were sweet and funny and smart
(well, once i actually got to know you)
and that you have a really nice smile
or that your hands are always warm

like i said, mom wasn’t too interested
in all the gory details
but that's alright for now
