Broken crayons still color.
There is a difference between answering your BS's questions about the A and daydreaming, "Dang, AP had the cutest feet. We had the best time chilling at the buffet back on May 3rd. I wonder if he thinks about me like I do about him...?"
Answer your BSs questions. Examine your thought processes that led you to the A. Leave the fluffy crap at the door.
