it's just a little crush

Ahh, crush, ahhh

I see ya blowin' me a kiss
It doesn't take a scientist
To understand what's going on baby
If you see something in my eye
Let's not over analyze
Don't go too deep with it baby

So let it be what it'll be
Don't make a fuss and get crazy over you and me
Here's what I'll do
I'll play loose
Run like we have a day with destiny

It's just a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la

It's raising my adrenaline
You're banging on a heart of tin
Please don't make too much of it baby
You say the word "forevermore"
That's not what I'm looking for
All I can commit to is "maybe"

So let it be what it'll be
Don't make a fuss and get crazy over you and me
Here's what I'll do
I'll pay loose
Run like we have a day with destiny

It's just a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la

Vanilla skies (vanilla skies)
White picket fences in your eyes
A vision of you and me

It's just a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing
Not like everything I do
Depends on you

yes, that was mine and finch's theme song. i had been dating a fellow theater nerd for a year, and he decided i wasn't what he wanted anymore. i was worse than devastated, so i signed up for 21 semester hours that fall. i was also the box office manager for the blinn theater, and would be auditioning for both fall shows. needless to say i wasn't interested in dating. we had auditions and there was th ex with his new "thing". in the back row sat two military looking fellows, you know buff with burr cuts. i said out loud woo hoo fresh meat because most of the guys in the theater are less than macho men. turns out one of the guys, chris, was there to support his girlfriend, brittany, who was auditioning, and had talked his best friend, finch, into joining. well, cast lists were posted and brittany was my understudy. she immediately went into yenta mode. she was determined to set finch up, apparently she thought he was in need of a girlfriend. my friend shelley was all set up to attend a lovely dinner/double date. something came up last minute and she couldn't attend. brittany desperately needed someone to accompany her to lyons. it was dark and she didn't feel entirely comfortable driving the 30 minutes by herself, so i agreed to go if she would drop me off to see a few of my friends who lived near by. well, she decided to stay the night and i had no choice but to agree. she and her boyfriend crashed in finch's room. finch slept on the floor, so that i could have a bed to sleep in. the next morning i woke up to see finch vacating the bathroom wearing his scrub bottoms and no top. i said "what a cutey where do i get one?" that weekend we went to the kolache fest as our first date, and then dancing. 3 months after that we drove to vegas to get married. ten years later we are still married and happier than ever. most of my friends gave us 1 year max, glad to say we won.

I remember meeting Finch for the first time at Cindy's house and I remember thinking, "Who is this person?" because he didn't really say very much, but I could tell you were smitten hook, line and sinker. I then went to Basic Training not long after that and I think it was either right before I left to got to Tech school or when I first got there that I got your letter saying that you had gone off to Vegas to get married and I think that was the same letter you announced that you were preggers. I was like, "What on earth just happened?!?!?!?!" I was shocked to say the least, but then when I came to San Angelo for Tech school pt deux and I came down to visit you guys, man Finch was just as much of a Chatty Cathy/Charlie as the rest of us and I knew it was all gonna be okay! :) By the way, I don't think I ever told you that I really like Finch and I think you guys are very perfect for each other! Maybe I did and forgot. That happens a lot with this brain of mine. After that visit, I went away thinking, "Wow, he's the only one that I ever saw soften your heart. I mean you would do anything for him even bending over backward!" Very cool. Okay, my monologue is complete. One question though. Does Cindy have a kiddo now? Did I miss something? I think I did.

That is awesome. I knew that story already, but it's one that never gets old. People can criticize you all they want...but look how I went about mine. You did really well.
