I do this to six-year-olds all the time, except instead of "I love you" I say "I'm stupid and I pee my pants!" If I'm lucky they'll look confused and not know what to say. More often, though, they just say "Ewwww you're gross!" and I'll go "Curse you, six-year-old!"
In this analogy, the exploding bomb is the girl replying "Ewww, gross, you're a creepy schmuck and I award you two out of ten hottie points" and ignoring me. My bomb-ravaged body represents my self-esteem.
