There’s nothing worse than having a crush, to a girl who generally isn’t afraid to speak her mind out unless HE‘s around and then her brain gets scrambled. I won’t be suprised if one day, all the feminists in the world decide to bar me from having further crushes. Or decide to burn me on a stake for ruining their reputation. I won’t even blame them!
This incident happened 4-5 years ago and I haven’t gained a single lick of common sense on the matters of the heart or libido(lust)-either way.
Scene setting : Home
Occasion : Night before my Sister’s wedding
Scene: Aand action-
I was having a perfectly comfortable conversation with a family friend’s son when all of a sudden he picks up one of my books from the shelf and says ,“If tomorrow comes? This is my favourite book! I loved each and every line in this.”
……and BAM! I wanted to marry him. Obviously.
Honestly, I couldn’t be geekier if I tried. And suddenly the conversation that was flowing like nature calls after having Indian food gets suddenly constipated and dry. Sorry for placing that image in your head. I’m suddenly all too aware of my pajamas that has little tiny red robots’ scribbles on them that I bought because it resembled Iron Man, my hair is… I’m not even going to go there. I start behaving like a 10 year old with a crush and I make little horrifyingly inappropriate jokes out of nervousness. By then, he’s wary and probably wondering if the leaves I chewed on earlier which my 6 year old cousin brother challenged me to, was taking it’s toll.
Present day, and one gazillion crushes later:
Me prepping myself : You are 20, you are learning medicine. You are responsible, smart and despite what people tell, atleast you find yourself funny. Just act casual. Stay cool. Talk about the weather or something. It’s been so many years now, you probably don’t even remember hi-
He : Hey, long time! How are you?
Me : Summer season is so hot.
The rest of the conversation continued in a likely manner more or less. They say butterflies tingle your gut at times like these, I think mine are let loose in my skull and they are probably causing brain damage with all the excessive fluttering.
Do you remember any cringe-worthy moments involving those old crushes of yours? Especially those first crushes that you can’t seem to get over despite having so many more? Please do share so I can
laugh at sympathise with you! 😉
