Love Notes - My First Crush

He had red hair and freckles and wore knee high socks with velcro shoes. Didn't we all in the mid-eighties! His name was Ben F. and supposedly he was my kindergarten boyfriend, although I have no real memory of boyfriend interactions with him. All I had to remember him by was a photo of our kindergarten graduation at Royer Park.

Fast forward to the first day of eighth grade History class at a brand new school and who should be sitting in front of me but Ben F. Only he was an eighth grade boy with the kind of body odor some eighth grade boys remain painfully oblivious to.

It was a long year.

This is adorable. I had one of those boys sitting in front of me for one class. I dreaded that class every day.

I love that his name was Ben "F." Every person's last name was just an initial in those days. My first crush was on Brent M. :D

Oh, and my word verification is fiest! yay! haha

this one cracked me up, because my first crush was such a nerd, too. the only "boyfriend" type interaction i recall was that he won some weird fuzzy toy (the prize for reading a ton of books) and he gave it to me. ha ha.

Haha. Since "Axe" has been invented they don't have BO. They just smell bad in that 'Did you pour the whole bottle of cologne on your self?' way. ;D
