Crushes and CerealPosted: September 4, 2013
i was sitting at work with So-So when a patient came to the desk to check in. she was young, late teens (i assumed) and as i checked her in to be seen she asked me a question-
“weren’t you in yokosuka?”
i nodded that i was and she mentioned my ship. i was baffled. how the hell did this girl know what ship i was on in yoko? i guess she could tell i was puzzled so she tells me, “you dated ET3 cervantes right?”
WTF!!!!!???! now it was getting weird. this went down 2012, and i left yoko in 2006.
she mentions she did a tiger cruise (where family members come onto the ship and get underway for 2-3 days) and cervantes was her families spaonsor. then she mentions cervantes taking them to medical becase she had to talk to someone. i guess once they left she told the fam that i was her bf.
OOOOOOOOOOOH!!!!! ok. i DO remember the tiger cruise, but i don’t recall the gf bringing a family to medical. but whatev’s, the story pans out. she tells me her dad was ETC (don’t recall his name, but i remembered who he was), and my gf was her and her mom’s sponsor. makes sense, 2 women usually will be sponsored by a female from the sailors department to show them around. then she hits me with- “i remember being totally jealous of her (my gf).”
i don’t recall her exact age when this went down but it was either 17-18. which meant she was about 10-11 when this happened on the ship. i stared at her for a second and i just didn’t have words. i finally told the other tech that i had to run to CT. it was the first thing and best excuse i could make to get the hell out of there.
i had NEVER had anything like this happen to me before. and it made me VERY uncomfortable considering her age. but the take away from this is when a girl has a crush, she’ll probably remember it for LOOOOOONG time. i’m sure this has happened to other guys. i mean hell, there were girls that were too old for me when i was a kid that i had a major crush on.
i was about 9-10 years old and she was in junior high. i called her fruit loop because me and a friend were making fun of her last name sounding like “cereal” and the topic turned to cereal. she immediately informed us, “FRUIT LOOPS!!! that’s my favorite.” from then on, that was her name.
never told her i liked her and i have no clue if she knew or not considering i was in that young boy always teasing girls age. found out about a year later she ended up pregnant…..WHOOPSADAISY. but…..
i STILL remember that crush. lol.
SCENTED CANDLE FAGGOTRY!!!!!!!!!
i figured with summer dying down i’d get one more summery candle, so i went with woodwicks trilogy of: dew drops, water garden, and aegean sea. i REALLY wanted to cop my favorite scented candle (harvest welcome) by yankee candle. but it seems odd to buy it pre-october. but i have no regrets, the woodwick is FABULOUUUUUUS!!!!!
and now a word from our sponsor-
