Boys and Girls
The difference is apparent early: A boy has as much fun in stoning a cat as a girl has in bunting for violets.
A boy’s curiosity is directed to the ice box; a girl would like to see what is in the top bureau drawer.
A girl can give the impression, when away from home, that her parents are wealthy; a boy cannot.
Every boy is old enough to be welcome to sit in the neighbor girl’s parlor many years before his sister thinks he is old enough to sit in the parlor at home.
A girl is never so young that she will reveal to guests at a party that the spoons are borrowed; a boy child never grows so old that he fails to.
Give a boy a dollar and he will eat it; give his sister one and she will wear it.
A brother and sister may have hair of the same shade, but the boy’s is called red and the girl’s auburn.
When brothers fight, it is over the larger share of pie; when sisters quarrel, one has worn something belonging to the other without asking permission. The Youth’s Companion
