Oh awkward day! Dave was the first crush I had upon transferring to Wilmington Friends. And what an embarrassing, horrific, teenage crush it was. It was the one (I’m sure most girls had one like this) that you ran into a locker when you saw him in the hallway, stumbled on your words within 10 feet of him, and wrote endless notes to your girlfriends wondering WHEN he would notice you. There are so many awkward memories for me associated with Dave I could write a short story about it. But I won’t.
I’ll just say that I moved on past my crush. Dave went to college and there was someone new to break my heart. But a few months ago, I became friends with Dave on Facebook and turns out he lives about a half-mile from where I work. We have friends in common! And you know what he said, “I see your high school stalking has followed you into adulthood.”
And here I am, mortified all over again. He knew the whole time about my crush. How embarrassing. How royally embarrassing. And laughable.
