    The legal age in Guatemala is 12 years. Can they stay engaged for 5 years? The boy looks like a "playa", and the girl......well......

    i couldn't figure it out either ... why not call it air mattress in the first place


    and it's an entertaining little story for sure (and ridiculously funny written "plan foiled" "lovebirds", "consoled them with a free tour of the police station")

    Those kids had it all so well planned out. They even thought about sleeping arrangements. I'm not even sure if I'm that organized now! I'd probably end up sleeping in a mound of dirt, sweaty from the heat, possibly naked, and with a bottle of port.

    I think it's quite cute that the two imagined/planned the whole thing.

    However, I would not refer to five- and six-year-olds as "lovers." Can we stick with "sweethearts" or "best friends" or "co-children"? Because to me "lovers" implies a certain genre of activity that gives me hives when paired with the phrase "seven-year-old sister."
