I’ve learned my lesson. The moment that you give any sort of attention to a child, he or she will latch onto you like a leech and suck the living soul out of you. Okay, slight exaggeration, not all kids will suck out your soul, only some. Example: Chelsea, the six-year-old alley rat that I was nice to WILL NOT LEAVE ME ALONE! Ever since that first meeting, she tracks me down every week. It has gotten to the point where I now ignore her. Brandon and Andrew now warn me each time she comes around and I try to think of ways to avoid her. I don’t want to be mean to her but she is that annoying little fly that keeps buzzing around that you want to squash. What do I do? Remember, I don’t do well with confrontation, even if she is a little girl.
