Girls are like apples on trees...

I was supervising an exam on Friday (a time I usually use to brainstorm writing ideas - it's just too mind-numbingly boring otherwise) and this was stuck on the wall of the classroom I was in:

Girls are like
apples on trees. The best
ones are at the top of the tree.
The boys don’t want to reach for
the good ones because they are afraid
of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they
just get the rotten apples from the ground
that aren’t as good, but easy. So the apples
at the top think something is wrong with
them, when in reality, they’re amazing.
They just have to wait for the right
boy to come along, the one
who’s brave enough
to climb
all the way
to the top
of the tree.

Nice! Was it written in the shape of a tree or was that your touch?

Yup, it was written in a tree shape :-)

...and then they backstab each other in the fight to catch his eye.

(not getting any warm fuzzies, but the tree shape is a nice touch.)

I first saw this in college and it helped me immensely (and ended up being true, no joke). Thanks for posting! This is highly valuable stuff. :)
