He was handsome, tall, thin and I was glad he was a part of my family. I was just a kid to him, he knew I loved to be around him. He was married to my only sister. I don’t think he knows to this day that he was my first crush. I wanted someone just like him, he was always kind and respectful to my parents, even after my sister divorced him. That was sad, because I wanted them to stay together because I liked going over their house. My sister was 15 years older than me, so I was truly the kid sister. I’m just a few years older than my nephews.
When I was 8 years old (I know long, long time ago), we were having a family gathering at my parents’ house. We were dancing, playing cards and having a good time. My mother decided she wanted to let everyone know that I was starting to develop, and pulled my shirt up in front of everyone to show them my training bra. My brother-in-law was there, and I remember being sooooo embarrassed when it happened, I looked right up at him. It took me a minute to get over that one and I couldn’t look at him for a while after that.
That brother drove the nicest cars, had two or three Nissan or Datsun as they used to be called Z’s, they would go fast and we always wanted to ride in them when he stopped by to see my nephews. He was an Air Traffic Controller and that made the crush even more appealing, because he had a respectable career. Broke my heart when he remarried, seriously. She was a lucky woman I thought, and they had a daughter together.
Time went on, we lived out our lives and came in contact again when my sister passed away in 1997. My family was devastated, my brother-in-law called and spoke to the family. He and I talked for about 20 minutes, he expressed to me how he still loved my sister after all those years, I was very surprised to hear him say that. I could hear the hurt in his voice. Yes, what an honorable thing, glad he was my first crush.
What about you all, did any of you have a crush on anyone? How many of you remember this song?
