My first crush was Cyndi Lauper. I was in grade school.
You see, I’m an 80’s baby. I remember buying Pepsi just so I can have a plastic water mug with a wild and crazy Cyndi imprinted on it.
Back in the day, I had really crushes on girls who were not seen as conventionally beautiful.
Another case in point, Tori Spelling. This was during my high school days. I remember mailing her this gigantic birthday card. In return, she sent me a mail merged fan mail. I was stoked.
I also had a crush on my first cousin. Wait a minute. Hold your judgment. Let me just say that she’s hot.
Hot or not...yeah, I know. It’s weird. But I was just a kid back then.
My infatuation with her ended when my mom blurted out that my cousin had bad odor. That was the deal breaker for me.
