Lisa's List

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
by Lisa (aged 7 and a quarter)

  • Clever
  • Confident
  • Brave
  • Strong
  • Handsome
  • Funny
  • Gentle
  • Kind, always looks after his girlfriend
  • Thoughtful
  • Has good ideas (innovative)
  • Rich
  • Joyful not miserable
  • Loving
  • Caring
  • Keen
  • Careful with his work
  • Slim
  • No big boobs
  • Spiky hair
  • Fit
  • Good looking
  • Good thinker
  • Good at making cooked breakfast
  • Sure what he's doing when he goes to work
  • Fantastic
  • Fashionable colourful clothes
  • Is a good boyfriend
  • Can drive
  • Helpful
  • Has a watch
  • Is good on the computer
  • Plays a musical instrument to keep you entertained
  • Cool style
  • Gives nice jewellery to his girlfriend
  • Buys chocolates and flowers for his girlfriend
  • Quiet when he should be
  • Good at massages
  • Buys Mia dresses
  • As rich as a prince

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…

  2. She's got a point: anyone not responsible enough to own their own watch isn't going to be good boyfriend material.

  6. Fashionable? Are you sure that list is legit? I'm not convinced…

    1. I have no idea, but it should probably be in language a seven year old would understand.
    2. yep, preferably showing the correct time tho… unlike mine that shows "Mia Time"
    3. Then do something constructive and suggest a better replacement. and quit screwing my ideals!
    4. hehehe, yeah, look at the size of those feet…
    5. Your face.
    6. What are you implying Sean? Of course they have to be fashionable – I have to want to be seen out with them. Shallow maybe but hey, I didn't write this list.

  9. Mia Time is when my alarm is set for 7:00AM but stopped at 1:05, my wrist watch reads 11:30 and my computer says it's 11:35. The result of all this meaning that I have missed two lectures I actually intended to attend, got stressed and then suddenly gained two hours. Which was somewhat more pleasant. The fact that I could have slept through my alarm and for an extra six hours doesn't shock me – It's happened before :\

  10. I have a third clock that is permanently stuck on 10 o'clock and a mobile that's almost accurate but always runs out of batteries. I am aquainted with punctuality but we've never really seen eye to eye…
