My twitter friends Twimom, Lynette, and Marissa, and I decided that it would be really fun to do a post on our first childhood crushes. So here is my contribution to this wonderful idea!
I had many, many childhood crushes. I don't really remember the first one because I've probably been man crazy from when I cams out of the womb. But there is one that stands out more than the others. And like most of the little black girls, I was in love with him. My first crush was Ralph Tresvant from New Edition!!
This is my favorite 2nd album cover in the history of album covers. #1 is Thriller of couse. (MICHAEL!!!) I used to stare at my cassette cover and just dream of Ralph. Then my 4 girl cousins and I would decide which of us would get which guy. My pushy cousin Olivia would always insist on getting Ralph. I would get Ronnie. Which wasn't too bad, but I wanted Ralph dammit!! Carsandra always chose "Crazy" Bobby Brown. Melissa and Brenda got stuck choosing between Mike or Ricky. *chuckling* But at night when that pushy Olivia wasn't around, I would always dream of Ralph.
So there is my choice of childhood crush. I would love to write more but the 1 yr. old in charge of me (that would be The Boss Lady) doesn't want me to do anything, so I apologize for having such a short post. I'll make it up with my Hump Day Hottie next week. ;D
Enjoy your weekend!
