I will tell you about Alen. I was in the sixth grade when I had a crush on Alen (who didn’t spell his name that way then, though he does now) and had a crush on him through eighth grade. He was incredibly smart, especially in science. He was brillant. I was an extremely intelligent girl and I was impressed by smart people. He was quiet and kind of shy, and he had a crush on me too. I think I had a crush on him even earlier than sixth grade, in fifth grade because he and Timmie had a crush on me at the same time.I saw him a few times at dances in high school in freshman year but those dances were so painful that we both stopped going to them and we lost track of each other. Over the years I heard about him from my mother who ran into his mother occasionally and I heard he had dropped out of college and was writing and doing well. This past year, some 40 years later, I heard from him. He had googled me and found me on Facebook and we started an email friendship and have had a friendship ever since. He has lost none of his brillance; often I don’t understand what he’s saying! He is witty and sarcastic and funny and kind and I’m so glad he found me and we have this friendship long distance (he lives in New York City and I live in San Antonio, TX). I still have a crush on him and hope we can get together one day and see each other once again.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
