The first girl I ever had a crush on was DeeDee, a cute little blonde girl I met in Grade 1. We became best friends and often played together after school. We would act out scenes from our Dick and Jane readers, like the one pictured above. Oh, innocent fun!
Then, in Grade 3, I invented a sleepover game that involved taking off all our clothes, getting in bed and just enjoying how good the cool sheets felt on our naked bodies. That game was innocent fun too.
But I think DeeDee told her Mom about the game. The next thing I knew, DeeDee said she wasn't allowed to play with me any more, although she never specified why. I was heartbroken for a while but life went on.
When we hit high school, DeeDee went completely boy crazy and I mean completely. As a not-so-innocent enticement to the boys, she stopped wearing panties under her tight polyester slacks. I still think of her whenever I see a camel toe.
