Some Crushes Never Die...
I just did something that most of you will probably laugh at.
I entered my band in a contest to open for the Hanson brothers when they come through town this summer.
Yes, they are still together. Yes, apparently they play songs other than "Mmmbop" now, though I have not actively sought out their music since 1997. I think they maybe even got haircuts since then (blasphemy, I know). I think Taylor is still probably the "cute one," even though he got married.
Zack is probably still single though. He was always the one I loved anyway. My cousin had called permanent dibs on Taylor and Issac was just plain ugly. But Zach rocked the drums and was all kinds of adorable. He was 13 when I was about 10, so it always seemed like things could work out between us. Too bad he never knew I existed.
Chances are, nothing will come of the contest. But when my daily Internet surfing led me to a page that said "CLICK HERE TO OPEN FOR HANSON IN YOUR HOMETOWN," the part of me that is still 10 years old got really excited.
And now I'm off to dig out my copy of "Middle of Nowhere" (one of the first CDs I ever bought!) and relive the fourth grade. Peace out.
