I'm Kind of a Jerk

The day after Valentines I was at Harris Teeter and saw that roses were crazy cheap. I bought a dozen for the Cradle, because that place could use just about any help it can get to look better. When I came in I saw an intern and with a humorous impulse I handed her the flowers saying, "you know, I've always had a crush on you and... well... here."

I just got this email:

hi! so, you probably don't remember me, but that's ok, I don't really care. you see, I was an intern at the cradle and um, you pretended to give me roses the day after valentine's. to be honest, I thought that was hilarious. I still laugh about it. anyway, I thought I would give you a boost of confidence, like you even need it, but a couple years ago I really did have a crush on you b/c I thought you had a nice smile. don't you love how alcohol makes people honest? yep, so, that's about it. have a great night, or morning, or whatever, depending on when you read this.

Fuck. I am a huge prick. She's right about the "like you even need it" because at times I'm really a self-centered narcissist; e.g. this whole blog entry. I try to come off like, "oh, I'm really sorry for being such a jerk," but in reality it's more like, "check out that some girl had a crush on me!"

I had a crush on the assistant teacher when I was in third grade.

I don't remember her name.

One day she said I was "gorgeous."

Which is really an odd thing for an assistant teacher to say.

Anyway, if you're out there assistant teacher for the third grade teacher whose name I don't remember either, holla at me.

p.s. "Geneffects", your smile is not even in the top 10 best smiles in America, so put that in your pipe and smoke it.
