  1. I learned to wink at church camp, playing cards against a girl I had a major crush on. Every time she’d play a hand, she’d give me the perfect wink, and I had to try to immolate it every hand I played. We played for days on end every chance we got before I got it down. If only I’d known that I wasn’t the only female with a female crush! ?

  2. OH MY GAWD that’s so cute I think my heart actually stopped beating. When I was a wee youngling, I had a crush on the school bus assistant–one of the older kids (A FIFTH GRADER; my kindergarten heart ached) who helped make sure the younger kids got on and off the bus safely, made sure we didn’t horse around, kept our hands inside… basically was the bus driver’s snitch. I wanted a picture of their gorgeous face so bad, but alas, I had none. So, I drew one myself. This little smiling stick-figure in blue crayon with their name misspelled at the bottom (in case I forgot who it was, I guess). Little kids with crushes are adorkable.

  3. Thanks for the giggle this morning!
    I had many teacher crushes and it is a little bit saddening to read this and go back to the place in your memory where you knew you were just so so perfect for her, but all she saw was that proverbial eye twitch. Sigh.
