My in-town friends who read this blog are going to razz me good. Probably my out-of-town friends and relatives too, but I just have to get it out.
So, in one of the local grocery stores, there's a kid. And, yes, he's a kid, I am positive he's in high school, I am almost sure of this. To me he bears a resemblence to Robert Pattinson. You know, the Twilight vampire Edward? The kid has a similar square jaw and bushy eyebrows.
I feel so weird around him, the clerk, almost like I'm seeing a celebrity. Which is even weirder, because I don't particularly think I'm crushing on Robert Pattinson. I don't particular care for Edward in the books, and I don't think I have that much interest in him on-screen. Yes, I will admit, he's a good looking young man. YOUNG, I keep telling myself.
So is the grocery clerk. He's young. So why do I feel all silly and girly? I find myself forcing myself to act like a normal mom, in her thirties, but trying to avoid too much eye contact, though, really, I would just like to stare for a bit, but I don't want to weird him out. I also wonder if the girls at the high school are all falling over him because of his looks. I hope so, because he is good looking!
For heaven's sake, I'm ALMOST FORTY. Somebody make my hormones act their age!
PS-if any of you tell my husband, you will totally feel the wrath of Wild Child, because I cannot bear having him make fun of my stupid young man crush!
