Who was your first crush? What were they like?


She was tough. Curly, blonde, Shirley Temple curls, that she took a lot of shit for at times, but never changed over the seven years that i knew her. The same height as most of the boys and broad of shoulder. She was one of the ring leaders of the girls pushing for cricket training, and i one of the poor fools who offered to buddy with her for the Level One Coaching clinic that a few of us did. I love cricket like no other, and am sorry that i can't be playing it at the moment. it is something missing from my life, but here in Dallas my choices are the indians, who can be a pack of whining princesses and i have told some of them as much to wind them up and get them to pull their fingers out, but at least some of them are willing to have a beer at the end of the day, and the other choice are the Pakis, who are great to play with but are all Muslim so don't bloody drink. I met the Colonials, an ex-pat Aussie, kiwi, pommy and saffer team, but the few i met annoyed the shit out of me, and didn't invite me or even respond to my original email so they can stick it up their arse.

Penny, which was the point of this short rant, was pretty cool, we had known each other in primary school briefly, and she was fairly famous for kicking my friends in the nuts. She was a prefect in primary school and later in high school (a turncoat student who toed the school line and who would infrequently bully people / enforce school policy). I kicked a prefect in the shin once, because i was wearing black sneakers to school, instead of regular school shoes, and he gave me the whole stupid safety lecture the school hid behind in an effort to enforce uniform. They weren't hard leather dress-sytle shoes, but they were leather and they were black, and they were pretty safe considering they were steel-toed. I am probably lucky that my demonstration of the safety features didn't cost me detention.

Anyway that was my first crush. A bit of a tomboy, but she was keen on cricket, and i guess that's probably what sold me on her, that and the fact that she didn't completely ignore me. She couldn't she already knew me :)
