My First Crush

A long long time ago, long before Theo and Diego-san had their first battle, I passed two girls on my elementary school playground. It was clear by the resemblance that the two were sisters. The younger one looked at me and for the first time in my life I fell in love. The next year she was in my class and I of course was far too shy to say anything to her. When our class shared Valentines with each other I made sure I gave her the nicest one in my store bought mass produced bundle. Years passed and I admired her from a far, but still I was far too shy to say anything. Her family moved away when we were in junior high.

Why do I share this little story? Because through the miracle of Facebook, we now are Facebook friends. I sent a friend invite to her, not knowing if it was really her, and not really expecting her to remember me let alone accept. But yesterday she did. This Facebook thing is a little bizarre...
