Studliness

I have a temptation to do an adorable little blogpost about Collin and Isaac. After all, they've been friends since as long as they can remember. They're every bit as "awwwww" as Alissa and Grace. But I just know it wouldn't come out right. I would say something sappy or wrong or worst of all I would say something reeking of generation gap insensitivity. I get reprimanded often for using the word "cute" in the same sentence in reference to a guy. Like Stephen...everything about him is cute but my teenagers throw fits if I say that in public, even though he is only 6. And the worst one is (and I think I've grown out of it) is when I refer to Collin's friends as his...uh-huh...boyfriends. It's just a logical step sideways from referring to my girlfriends as my girlfriends. Only, it's not cool. It causes teenagers to put their face in their hands and shake their heads as if someone just died. It's very, very bad. So, we'll just stick with the picture on this one. (Even if Isaac is one of Collin's cutest boyfriends.)

hahahaha!!! I have the same problem about using cute and someone of the male gender in the same sentence. Sometimes cute really is the best adjective, appropriate or not.

Like Stephen. How can 'cute' not be the right word for him??? What would Collin say to describe him?
(I bet when he talks to his boyfriends about Stephen he uses the word cute and just won't admit it!! How could he not??)
