Recently I as trying to remember who my first crush was, and I came across a old memory I hadn't thought about in years. It made me laugh, and I hope it brightens someone else's day, too. When I was five years old, I had a massive crush on this other girl in kindergarten. I was totally infatuated with her, even though she hated my guts. She was the type of popular girl who thinks she's better than everyone else and has those two groupies that follow her around everywhere. I wanted to be one of those groupies, I wanted her to love me. One day I came up with the plan that I was going to draw her a beautiful picture to show her how much I liked her. The picture, ironic enough, was a rainbow. Of course it was a rainbow! My first lesbian crush and I draw her a rainbow. Why not. So I went and gave her this picture that I had worked so hard on, and she looked at it and said that it was upside down. I looked and saw the rainbow curving away from me, and she a facing me so I said that no, it was right side up. She sighed and said that the rainbow was upside down, not the picture. Everybody knows that rainbows go from purple to red, not red to purple. I was devastated. Every rainbow i had ever seen went from red to purple! Now she would never like me! She went and broke my little gay heart. I bawled my eyes out in the car, still holding the picture. I think I had held it during the whole school day. My mom consoled me in the car, and convinced me to stop trying to be friends with someone who was always so mean to me. She also reassured me that rainbows do indeed go from red to purple. I hadn't thought about this in years, and I found it pretty hilarious, especially that I drew her a rainbow of all things. Hope someone else is able to laugh at my failed kindergarten romance.
