There's this thing going on around on FB now where you give someone a letter and they put up a song by a band whose name starts with that band.

I gave Jackie S, assuming it would be Sisters of Mercy.  Or she'd cheat and do the Smiths.

Nope.  I got Stinkyfinger.  The garage band headed by my high school crush.  And I now have the entire album they put out lingering on my flist, waiting for me to burn it to cd.

They were rude and crude. Beyond offensive.  And yet....my mother let me go see them on my 18th birthday.

And Chris (aka UglyUgly) made the band learn a couple of Duran Duran songs for my 18th birthday.  He made veiled sexy comments from the stage, then made sure no one at the bar even who even THOUGHT of hitting on me would live to regret it.

He drove me home for curfew during their intermission.  I was 18 and still barely aware of how interactions by non-family people work.  He walked me up to the back porch, kissed me on my forehead, and said "Happy birthday, Alicia."

We're all grownups now.  But my stomach still gets all fluttery when we talk on FB.

I'm such a dork.

When somebody gave me an N, they regretted it.

I know--this meme just makes it irresistible. Watch out for people with R, too...

I've been crushed out HARD on this guy since I was 14. Scary to think it's been almost 30 years (that's a LONG crush).

Now, we talk about music, old Theatre Bristol gossip, and he asks me for parenting advice. It is so effing weird.

I have another story about him, but I'll FB message you about that.

That's so adorable! Nobody has ever done anything so romantic for me :-) And how nice to still feel the flutter. *g*

I recently found out he had a bit of a thing for me, but I was off limits because a) jailbait (legal in VA, damnit!) and b) my mother trusted him, but he knew that could change on a dime and if she didn't kill him, Grandpa would have.

I spent the rest of the day all blushy and giggly, remembering that waist length red hair and gorgeous hazel eyes.

Ummm...I think I'd better go visit my bunk. *ahem*
