Year 5, Day 224

As we walked in the door to school this morning, a voice from our left said, “Hi Miles.” I turned to find an adorable little girl standing near the front desk, looking at Miles and waving.

“Miles!” I said after he didn’t respond. “Say hi!”

Not breaking stride, he gave her a half-hearted, borderline dismissive wave without looking at her.

“Oh, come on!” I said. “Don’t give her the cold shoulder!”

He walked on to his classroom, exuding confident aloofness even as I asked him about the girl. “Who is she?”

“That’s Rosie,” he said.

“Well she seems nice. Is she your friend?”

No response.

Miles is obviously looking to carve out a reputation as a heartbreaker at an early age.
