I Love in a Full Blown Puppy Way

My crushes are so numerable, it is crazy to try to remember them all. When I love you it’s in a full blown puppy way, in your lap with Tarzan’s call. Sky King, Mighty Mouse, Bugs Bunny, The Pink Panther, Howdy Doody. Yes, I know it is dating me. I also crush on things sweet and fruity. Cobbler, filled donuts, eclairs, turnovers, any kind of pie especially cherry. I loved being outside picking fruit, peas, beans, and all kinds of berry. I crushed on mushrooms fresh from the woods full of tiny ants. When I got a bit older I crushed on bell bottoms, the hippy pants. Crush on Elvis, Johnny Cash, John Wayne, Maureen Sullivan and others. Cannot get enough of Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew, and Agatha Christie. Love all things shiny dazzling – rhinestones, aluminum foil, names like Trixie. Attracted beyond belief to Tina Turner, Cher, Bette Midler and Adam Lambert. A hippie throwback with a green thumb; I love to wear a three tiered skirt. TV is not my thing at all, but I love to paint, swim, dance, play racquetball. I love what I love, and I mean for the rest of my life, flat out in a puppy way. So if you want to be my friend, make sure it’s forever because I don’t play.

Wondrous write, Caren. I agree with the sentiment, especially since sometimes despite our best efforts, friends from our youth fail to keep in touch. New friends may have a better track record. :-)

I have to admit I have friends who have been my friend since 1959, so I am not one to talk about losing them. However, I am selective and toss many aside once they betray me for the 10 hundredth time.
