Though Paris Hilton claims to have coined the phrase "that's hot," Junior High girls have taken HOT to all new levels. Three, to be exact.
When a junior high girl sees a cute boy, she might turn to her friend, and giggling, declare the boy to be "hot."
If he is really good looking, the heat gets turned up a notch, and the boy is branded "Hott --with two T's".
And when the boy is so incredibly cool, good looking, and to-die-for amazing that a gaggle of giggling junior high girls can only stand to gaze adoringly at him from afar, and mere words do not suffice to describe him, then that boy, my friends, is "Hot -- H.A.W.T".
And yes, it can go both ways. Girls can also be H.A.W.T. Like my sister, Farm Girl, for example.
So there you have it, the three degrees of Junior High hot-ness, courtesy of the Oldest (and the H.A.W.T-est) Carrotstick.
