I know women who squeal whenever they see a picture of crazy stalker dude (aka Robert Pattinson). I pretend to understand, but I'm really laughing at them.
I see the little girls screaming like fools whenever they see Crazy Stalker Dude and Jacobs Abs (Taylor Lautner) on Oprah and I'm thinking come on girlys get a grip. Sure, they're nice to look at, but WTF. It's especially absurd to me when I see grown women (or women over thirty) doing it.
It's the same thing when I'm watching America's Next Top Model and those silly girls scream like banshees whenever Tyra Banks walks into the room.
I don't mind a little healthy lust/admiration but keep it in private people, they're just people. Get a grip.
Frankly, I don't get it.
. . . . And then this happened . . . .
But, back to Ralph. Yes, I get side tracked a lot, but I did have a point.
From that moment on, I started writing plays. My friends and I each had our favorite New Edition member and I wrote plays which starred us and New Edition. In the end, I always got my man. I wrote the plays all the time, I did it throughout middle school. Which probably explains why I went from being in the honors class in 6th grade, to the yes you're smart but not that smart class in 7th and 8th grade.
By the way, was my school system back home the only one like that? We had the honors class, the smart class, the average class, and then the class for the delinquents. And from an early age, everyone knew which class was which. I mean I knew it in the Second Grade. I hated my second grade teacher and she hated me and as a result I didn't do so good in second grade and she switched my classroom in Third Grade. I had to leave the honors group and go into the smart class. I was right back in with the honors kids in Fourth Grade, but I still remember that heif . . . . never, mind.
Back to Ralph.
I also used to get into fights with people over Ralph. Right On! used to have a section in the back of their magazine where you could write to pen pals. I put my information in there. I had one pen pal that I wrote to on and off for years until we lost touch when I went into the Army. I found her once about seven or eight years ago, sent her an e-mail, we e-mailed back and forth and then I moved and changed e-mail providers and lost her information. So Kasonja, if you're out there in blog world. Send me a shout out!
Then I had another pen-pal who I got into a big pissing contest over Ralph Tresvant. We got into a big fight (or as much as a fight that you could get into through letters – LOL) about Ralph. For the life of me, I can't remember what it was about. But I know that ended our friendship.
Soon after, that ended my love affair Ralph. I still loved the music but I no longer felt the need to clutter my walls with posters. And real boys became more interesting than fantasy ones. And then, my obsession with Ralph, my dreams of us running off into the sunset and living happily ever after with him, waned.
Until, I'm sitting at my desk listening to Pandora and a certain song comes on the radio!
So, who was you're first crush? What memory does it evoke for you?
By the way, my Ralph Tresvant obsession became a twitter conversation and I realized I'm not alone. Check out my fellow bloggers and discover who they're first crush was!
