Yesterday I provided you with a small snippet of my ultimate Teen-Aged Girl Fantasy (I wonder how many hits I’m going to get with that phrase?). So I thought I‘d expand.
When I was 14 yrs old, I feel in love with this beautiful boy:
He’s now grown to be this man:
What? You don’t know who that is? Shame on you – that’s Jonathan Knight from New Kids On The Block (NKOTB). (Isn’t he absolutely gorgeous? He’s like a fine wine – he’s definitely gotten better with age). Most of my friends liked Donnie, Jordan or Joey. But not I. I’ve always been different. Well, ok not always – I did go through a very, very brief Jordan phase, and still have an air-brushed tank top I had made at Canada’s Wonderland in August of 1989 that says: “I Love Jordan”. My parents still have it in my “special” box in their basement. Any Jordan girls out there? You can have the tank top. ‘Cause I LOVE Jon!
In Highschool, my walls were plastered with pics of Jonathan.
My ultimate fantasy was that Jonathan would have a chance meeting with me, fall in love with me, then spend months trying to find me. Pining away for me the whole time. Until one day he found me, and picked me up in a Limo at my highschool. It was going to be after a field hockey game – I was going to run off the field in my field hockey uniform all hot and sweaty – looking absolutely smashing:
He would sweep me up in his arms, swing me around, nestle his face in my hair, and whisper: “I’ve finally found you, my love” in my ear. Then we would take off in his Limo, to the airport and fly away in a private jet to our smallish, yet wonderful beach house on a private island. We were going to live happily ever after in the caribbean, tending animals and growing vegetables in a small garden while raising a houseful of sons. (I’ve always wanted a son).
That was my “My Teen Aged Girl Fantasy”. So far only part of it has come true:
(Have you gotten sick of seeing this pic, yet?)
I keep daydreaming the rest will come true.
But in a way it has. I have a beautiful house with a pool (it feels like our own island), a husband who absolutely adores me, an rottweiler, a small vegetable garden, and a houseful of daughters. Nothing can be better than this.
