Your first crush - do you even remember them? How did they shape the way you look at relationships, if at all? Was it a happy story or a tear-jerker?

I remember Donna Salerno from 2nd grade - mamma mia, she was gorgeous! I'd hang out when school let out, just to get a glimpse of her. The day she invited me over to her house to watch "Love Boat" - my feet didn't touch the ground. To this day I couldn't tell you what that episode was about - I was too busy being smitten.

Years later, in 6th grade, we hooked up some more. More invites to her house, her Mom loved me - I thought for sure we were getting married soon. But since our school only went to 6th grade, it was the last time I'd probably see her - my last memory of her was when she was in her cheerleading outfit - probably why I have a weakness for them today.

Junior high went by, then I transferred to an all-guy technical high school. In my second year there, they decided to bring in SIX girls as a test to see if a mixed-gender program would work. Now, picture 287 horny teenaged guys and SIX girls...uh-huh, it was like that.

But WHO was one of the six? Donna Salerno! I fell over myself, beating aside my erstwhile classmates just to get a glimpse of her walking down the stairs. Birds sang and all was right with the world when she smiled at me.

Now, she's probably married to a CPA in KissandTell, Idaho with 2.5 kids and a white picket fence. But the RUSH she introduced me to, the raw, primitive emotions, was priceless, and for that Lady Salerno will always be in my heart.

I showed you mine - now you show me yours.

This is such a sweet story and such a breath of fresh air here, Phil! You and Lior made the day!

Early crushes... Lemme see... The first guy who had a crush on me was walking me to the bus stop every day (2nd or 3rd grade...) and bringing me snowdrops from his Grandma's garden.

In about 4th or 5th grade I developed a serious crush on Z. He was very good looking and a popular soccer player (ya know, the equivalent of the football players here, but not the jock type...). As I result I attempted to show interest in soccer (if somebody doesn't know, I hate sports). Was watching games and was all up to speed with it. Both of us were A students. The problem was it was OK for a guy to be popular and an A student, while the same girls were frowned upon... Not that we were truly disliked, but it just wasn't a cool thing to have a crush on us. So, in 6th or 7th grade those cool kids started going out together and my crush had a GF... one of my best friends... Had to live with this somehow... Later on we were also in the same high school (the first boy, too), but my crush had already worn thin after so long and eventually I found a new interest.

The new interest in high school was very weird! What else is new, right...?! He was obsessed with heavy metal and was playing air guitar all the time, which I found kinda embarrassing. He was half-foreigner with a foreign name. I think that influenced my choices later in life or perhaps I've always had a deeply rooted taste for exotic and odd. Oh, yeah, he also smoked and I found the taste of his lips so appealing that I started smoking myself. It was a weird thing... still in 8th and 9th grade... there weren't that many "couples" per se. He didn't wanna advertise the "relationship" much and neither did I because all my friends found him appalling. After school, we'd leave with our respective friends of the same gender and meet later on at the bus stop and then never get on the bus and walk all the way home; well, occasionally with some stops in a bit isolated places...

Have no idea what any of them is doing at this time. The first two had gotten married and had kids, but I haven't seen them for years. Would be more curious to know what my AC/DC fan is doing...

A red rag top jag.

Or was it the blonde dish in the top cut down to her navel?

I guess I'll never know.

Well, before tonight, I hadn't thought of him for ages. Besides, the spy business back home is not as well developed yet as here. On the other hand, it's a small country and the gossip business is superior.

Yeah, you liked it because I couldn't get my soccer player, didn't ya...

That's cruel. Cruel and unusual, to imply that I take great comfort in the misfortunes of others. Cruel, unusual and....

*Pfttt*

...sorry - I couldn't keep a straight face anymore! HEY, SOCCER BOY! TOUGH LUCK

Now that you insinuated that, no wonder I feel like strangling folks often, huh...?!

I didn't insinuate that - I implied it.
