|This color: red-violet--my earliest purple shade|
I thought a list with a couple explainers might be the best way to go on this:
First Book Loves
Where the Red Fern Grows: (first book that made me cry, which I LOVE—the being that connected thing)
The Shining: First book I loved so much I felt compelled to carry it everywhere and read any time I got a minute.
|especially this scene where her dress changes back and forth|
Sleeping Beauty—I was in love with this before I ever saw it because my grandma had the book.
First Activity Loves
I preferred to be wet or upsidedown (not so much both): Swimming and Tumbling. I spent my young life doing one or the other.
First Celebrity Crush
|Yeah, I admit it. So I was a tween in 1977.|
First LOVES loves...
Well there was Aaron in my first grade class, but that was just a crush from afar...
And there was Eric, the first boy I 'went with'
And Bryan, the first boy I obsessively wrote to...
And Dave, my first truly obsessive crush
Note: the last three of these were ALL in 7th grade. It's possible my REAL first love was that I was a bit in love with LOVE.
I think I should stop there, as we are getting close now to the kiss and tell potential, and I really try not to do that. Especially as the ones I really loved (and there were a fair few) are mostly still in my life, but just as friends. I wouldn't want to create any friction.
