Quick Tip: Make Fun of People You Like

Oh Bother

This is an old playground tip that your mother, father or foster parent told you when you were little: when a boy or girl teases you, punches you, throws rocks at your head, or pours sand down your underpants, it’s because he or she likes you and is unable to express that interest appropriately (note: Hedgehog’s ongoing exposé on Julia Allison 1 2 3 4 5).

It seems counter-intuitive, but sometimes “tossing a rock or two” at someone that you like (who may not know that you’re interested in them) is an interesting and delightfully immature way of saying “I like your style and would like you to help me find a better way to get your attention.”

If you’re smart about it, maybe you’ll actually get the opportunity to say that. This tip, however, is definitely one that you exercise at your own peril.
