Mushy Me

Debi recently posted something that was most heartwarming. Read the 2 part story to find something that satiates the cravings of a true hopeless romantic.

I'm not quite sure how I became this Hopeless Romantic. I have no idea how I developed to be a
lover of sappy girly movies, someone who can picture her future with her husband by listening to a single maudlin song, or a girl who will watch a movie repeatedly, just because it reminds her of her love so far away.

I mean, my parents were "normal" (although, in Psychology, they teach you that "normal" is a relative term). They weren't super affectionate with each other, and have even spent the last several years on a very rocky path, teetering between tolerating and hating each other. And my sissy? Well, she was so scarred from underdeveloped social skills from the shoddy town we grew up in that she didn't even date until her Junior year of college.

I guess it all began with Anthony Pruske. Ah, my first love. You know, he was
that guy that made me hurt in my heart because I truly wanted to be with him. It was 6th grade, yeah, but you never forget your first love. (Although later, he found out I liked him, asked me out for a joke [kept secret from me], then had his best friend call my answering machine 4 days later to break up with me. Our "relationship" ended with my whole family hearing the message before I did. Yep, gave him all kind of crap for that a few years later, when he expressed interest in me...)

Anyway, I suppose from then on I was hooked on this magical mystery called LOVE. I may have gone through a time when I was a bit pessimistic and cynical about romance, but I never fully renounced it (hmm...kinda like my faith in God). And it was worth it. Let me tell you, it was well worth it.

In conclusion: as long as there are writers that keep creating mushy romantic comedies, as long as there are singers that croon about unrequited love, and as long as there's a certain boy that fuels my *profound* thoughts all day long, I will remain a lifelong member of the Hopeless Romantic faction.

Sidenote: I saw an episode of
In Living Color tonight. Wow, I used to LOVE that show. I've seen it offered on DVD, y'know, the box sets? Thinking of buying them, riiiight after I purchase The O.C. (season 1 and 2). Someday... they will be mine.
