Oh Robert, I Loved You

Did you know how much I adored you?

Did you know that all these years later I can remember specific moments we spent together as clearly as the crisp days they occurred.

Maybe the memories seem clearer than they are because I have photos tucked away in an album. There I am looking at you with a big smile. Or there's the one where we're playing not realizing we're being photographed.

*sigh*

I had such a thing for older men then.

Or was it your twin brother Richard. It was always hard to tell you apart. Who knows. I was only five.

This memory is brought to you thanks to my friend Jennifer who was remember her own Robert today.

I was ready to close down my facebook account when I saw Armando "Mondy" Rodriguez and his wife and his FOUR kids...

He was my kindergarten crush. I do believe kicking him in the shins was the game.

*sniff* Young love. Funny how memory fails us.

My imaginary husband was Jeff.

We had imaginary couple friends, Rod and Suzy Zanger.

Ha! I just came from another blog talking about pre-marriage bad dates, and I thought this was one. REally pre-karriage :-)

I don't know if I can remember my first crush... I think it may have been Shaun Cassidy... especially when he was Joe Hardy on The Hardy Boys...

The other 2nd graders didn't stand a chance.

I so wanted to see Miss Howard in a bikini when I was in 1st grade. She had kick ass feathery Farrah Faucet hair and big boobies. I could have made her happy on my big wheel or my more styling banana seat red sparkley Schwinn Stingray.
