My friend wrote this. I'm going to share it, because I have now been diagnosed with the following:
Love is a disease.
Symptoms may include, but are not limited to:
A feeling of weakness in the knees,
Chill, clammy hands,
A fluttering heart.
Known to cause hallucinations, insomnia,
And a dreamy, drowsy state of mind.
Love is a virus.
Once acquired, it controls the thoughts
And emotions of its victim.
There is no real cure; all we can do is wait
For it to run its course.
So settle in, snuggle up together,
And wait for the bug to pass.
I HATE THIS!!!! IT'S COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY STUPID!!!!!!!!! ARRRRRGGGGGGGG.
K, so this is not an ordinary "crush." This is the completely understated and quiet thing. I look for him in the halls, smile, speak normally, and I don't have any problems with any of the above symptoms. Out loud, anyway. This is the subdued and, well, almost real love, not a crush. Dumb. DUmb. DUMb. DUMB!!!!
There. My vent for the day. Boys are dumb. Especially a certain one. Who's amazing, gorgeous, sweet, sensitive, kind, funny, polite, happy, glowing.........
