School Days Crush (joke)

I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist. I noticed his diploma which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in my class some 40-odd years before.

Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then? Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, grey-haired man with the deeply-lined face was way too old to have been my classmate.

After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Garden school in Penang. "Yes. Yes, I did," He gleamed with pride. "When did you graduate?" I asked. He answered, "In 1959, Why do you ask?"

"You were in my class!" I exclaimed. He looked at me closely. Then, that ugly, old, bald, wrinkled, fat, grey-haired, decrepit idiot asked, "What did you teach?"

Just for laughs! Enjoy!

Ah, this post reminds me of back when I was in school. I used to have a crush on this hot blonde girl named Kim (I am a guy by the way). The first crush is definately an interesting experience if you ask me. It is like one moment you meet that girl you like (from a guy's perspective of course) and at first she seems like a normal classmate, and then she looks more like the hottest girl you have ever met (don't know how else to put it). Of course, the first time can be rough since you don't really know how to best approach that person. In my case, I let my shyness get the best of me, and eventually it was too late. I've learned my lesson from that though of course.

Of course, in my experience, it seems the best way to deal with a crush is to nip it in the bud and take the time to get to know that person. After all, time goes by fast, and if you don't act quickly enough, you might miss your chance (for example, classmates seeming to disappear after graduation), or worse: someone else might beat you to the punch (if you know what I mean).
