Why am I bringing him up on this particular Tuesday? I realized this morning as I was writing the date on the top of my class notes that today is in fact his birthday. Why do I remember his birthday? Once upon a time, I told said boy that I could guess the day he was born. He accepted my challenge, I "guessed" a day, and I got it right. From then on, my third grade class thought I was psychic. The truth: I was a creeper. And my teacher had a list of everybody's birthdays on the bulletin board. But I accepted my cool psychic label.
So happy 22nd birthday, 3rd grade crush. I will never forget your birthday.
