Oh, why not?

After reading "Because I'm being 14 years old today", which was itself a reaction to "Wherein we are back in seventh grade, but with better hair", I was mildly amused.

When I thought some more about it, though, I looked back to this past weekend when I went home to see family and get a full-blown Small Town 4th of July Experience™; as part of the latter, I ran into a couple of familiar faces working the town's historical society table.

They belonged to people who I'd known back in the sort of timeframe both [livejournal.com profile] shadesong and [livejournal.com profile] jasra mention, who were just in town for the day to help out because it's "home" for them too even though they both now live elsewhere.

Neither of them was the subject of my hopeless crush at that age, but one of them was my crush object's best friend at the time. That person has since sent me a "good to see you and I'm sorry I didn't think to get a picture" message, which sends my thoughts back to middle school...which means I may as well join in on this micro-meme.

You forgot the ultimate middle school answer: Cooties! ;-)

You are braver than I. I don't want to know if people *like me* like me because I fear I would feel awkward around them if I knew and would have to pay more focus/energy in trying not to aggravate their situation.

I did have someone tell me once that they loved me but that they wanted to make sure I did not feel obligated as a result; this actually mitigated the situation, but I already loved the person spiritually (and we...cuddled...well), and there really wasn't any awkwardness at all.

I've been thinking about this post for quite a while. You are indeed very brave, and I'm so happy to see that you've had so many responses! &hearts
