Boy crazy

Now, everyone knows that girls are crazy: does my bum look big in this? and why doesn't he like me? and I shouldn't have to ask!...

But on occasion a light-bulb turns on above my head with that tiny pinking sound and I realise that boys are just as crazy. For instance, I just noticed that nearly every interaction I have with boys amounts to me trying to say I am better than you, and every interaction with girls: I am better than your boyfriend.

Crazy!

I should add the disclaimer that this doesn't count for my interactions with my very closest.

And Dan, I'm sure it often is.

Okay, I will play devil's advocate:

What if it just so happens that you are neither? How do you comport yourself in that for-instance?

I'll cross that bridge when I come to it...

Seriously though, this is just an observation of my subconscious MO, not a manifesto or statement of intent; as such, it doesn't really stand up to 'what if...' questions.
