"See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand!

O that I were a glove upon that hand,
that I might touch that cheek!"

Romeo and Juliet (Act II, Sc. II)

An 11 year old boy who wanted to get his girlfriend's attention without waking her parents got a lesson in the strength of a window pane. A pebble fired from a slingshot has more velocity than a pebble tossed by hand. He said, he was just trying to get her attention. He is now doing odd jobs around his neighborhood to raise the money he needs to replace the window.

He was trying to see the girl early one morning a few weeks ago. At first, he threw wood chips at the window, but that wasn't enough, so he went home for heavier artillery. The slingshot worked in getting the girl's attention, but it also cracked the window. He immediately owned up to the broken window and promised the girl's parents that he would replace it. He went to his mother, who covered the replacement cost, but said, the boy was going to have to do extra chores.

Romeo and Juliet scene ha! Remember ko tuloy ang song na, Young At Heart. Fairy tales can come true, if can happen to you, if you're young at heart. For it's hard you will find, to be norrow of mind, if you're young at heart.... lala la lala la! I think, I'm in love, too!

Enjoy your life now, while you can, because it’s short and you never know when your last day will come. Live every day like it’s your last.
