This is cool! I'm in 7th grade, and every boy who would want to ask me out to a homeschool dance is too chicken to do so. But anyways, these ain't about me. <br> <p> -It could be someone who watches you from afar; he may listen and therefore hav discovered that you like turtles and blue. You're his secret santa? Maybe he found out about you for that. <br> <p> -I agree with the below. Get a friend to help! Two heads are ALWAYS better than one. Unless you're a super-genius. <br> <p> -Consider every option. It could be anyone! <br> <p> I'm afraid this is all l can think of. Hope l helped! Good luck!
