The problem with telling someone that you think their 16 year old son is really cute - a kid who, while adorable, is young enough to be YOUR son- is that that same person could gleefully turn around a few days later and say "Look! He's here! Your crush! Honey, this is the lady I was telling you about! She loves you! She thinks you're great!"
- I quickly jumped in and said "Don't say that! You'll embarrass.... HIM."
