While celebrating New Years Eve on saturday night, my best friend and I were given the mammoth task of looking after her 7 year old sister Lisa. At some point in the proceedings the following exchange occurred…
Lisa: Emma has a boyfriend doesn't she?
Me: Yep she does, his name is John.
Lisa: Mia do you have a boyfriend?
Me: Ah… No, no I don't.
Lisa: Well I'm seven and a quarter years old and I have a boyfriend, I really think it's time you had one too…
I said it wasn't that easy but asked her to describe the kind of guy that she's pick out for me, and thus the following list was created (she made me take note) and a picture that she kindly drew herself of my future boyfriend. So, in her own words, this is it:
Lisa's list for Mia's Boyfriend

Not bad at all, especially for someone who still adds fractions to the end of their name… My only concern was when she nearly added "Must be a hairdresser" but thankfully she changed her mind. Still, why a hairdresser? Mine's not that bad is it?! Any would-be applicants should be prepared to undergo a rigorous interview and selection procedure dictated by a seven-and-a-quarter year old
menace to society darling.
…No big boobs. hehehehehe…
