This is a confession, a deep dark secret I have kept to my lonesome for a very long time. I am going to reveal some of my childhood crushes. Once, I do, I just know that I may be getting a long sideways glance from you all, but I also know that all of you have had at least one weird crush in your lifetime that you probably would never divulge to anyone unless you were either extremely intoxicated or under complete duress. So, first off I had a crush on Lurch from the Addams family. He didn’t have much of a personality, but he was always well dressed and polite. On the complete opposite side of the spectrum Moe from the Three Stooges also made my tiny heart flutter, there was one thing that bothered me–I thought he could be a little nicer. Since childhood has not a lot to do with rationality and possibilities are endless I also had a crush on a cartoon–Speed Racer. The best part was his girlfriend had a name as close to mine as I had ever heard (up to that point)–Trixie. It was a stretch, but I felt that we were meant for each other. Lastly, I had/have a super crush on Abe ‘the babe’ Lincoln. Like.For.Ever. Abe wasn’t just a pretty face, oh, no, he was incredibly intelligent and so very interesting. Even now, in the 21st century he comes in third, as the most written about person in history, Jesus is first (is that a given?) and I can’t remember who is second. I was so excited to go see the new Lincoln movie, it was boring as all get out, but my heart warmed to the idea that there may be a whole new generation of little girls that will develop crushes on Honest Abe. Seriously, Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln? Need I say more?
Okay, one more thing, the best Abe Lincoln quote ever, via my bestie–Pinterest, here it is, enjoy!
