today i'm linking up with the hilarious bonnie and talking about my first crush!
i have narrowed down our experiences together to the two most noteable, and i think you'll enjoy them.
1. msn instant messaging was the only form of communication back in the day, so we were frequenters. we messaged back and forth about our stuuupid elementary school problems or exciting things that happened to us that day at school. on one particular instant-messaging session, he had to sign off because his dad needed him. when i saw he was "now offline," i decided that would be a perfect moment for me to release my true feelings. they had been cooped up in my heart for too long! i typed out something like, "i think you are so cute and i have a crush on you," and pushed enter, knowing he would never see it. i expected a weight to be lifted off my chest, but instead i watched in horror as i read, "this user is offline. (s)he will receive this message next time they sign in." HA! how embarrassing!
2. my mom was driving us home after a successful mall trip. we had both bought sweet new packs of pokemon cards, and were trading in the back seat. i let my feelings take over and got suckered into a ridiculous deal, trading one of my really rare cards for a few of his boring cards. after the exchange, he exclaimed how happy he was and said, "i almost want to kiss you!" my heart flew out of my chest, but i kept my cool by saying, "umm... ew! i'm glad you didn't!" ... and that, my friends, is the first time i ever lied to a boy about my feelings.
