Great Dictionary Conversation Starters

One of the 3rd year students at Kirita decided to use her dictionary to make conversation during lunch on Thursday. She started with some questions from what I'm guessing was an appendix at the back (of the dictionary) and then moved to seemingly random sentence examples from different dictionary entries. Here are some of the gems she used:

- Will you be my boyfriend?
- I want to hold your hand.
- That sweater becomes you very well.
- I have bittersweet memories of my first love.

I'm especially fond of the last one. It led to a conversation between a few of us about first loves and when they occurred. Interestingly, all three girls whom I asked said they had their first loves between the ages of 3 and 5. @_@ I don't think I had my so-called "first love" until junior high school!
