Cue jaw drop.
Guys, my 6th grade boyfriend was E V E R Y T H I N G back in the day. We were so obsessed with each other it was sickening. Super sickening actually. We did everything together, wrote each other lovey dovey little notes/poems/songs, made out everywhere, Blink182 concerts, Warped tour, ski club buddies, I went to his hockey games on the weekends, endless hours on AIM...
I WAS OBSESSED.
He was too though. This gem was also the first guy to ever cheat on me. Yep, you read it right. My 6th-8th grade boyfriend cheated on me. We named the bitch he kissed Sammy Poofster. When I found out (the bitch AIM'd me and told me) the ENTIRE school found out and EP was exiled. Teachers were so upset, I mean outrage ensued. Nobody would talk to him. Sammy Poofster went to a different school and I was loved at my middle school, loved to the point that I ran for class president. (Popular always, DUH) Anyways, our break up was complete shit and I was devastated.
So naturally, I dated two of his best friends thus ensuring he now REALLY had no friends.
I learned early on that anyone who dares fuck with me better watch their back because I will destroy you. (RAWR)
Gosh, these are the moments when I miss my X bestfriend Esther. She is the only person who could truly appreciate EP coming back into my life randomly, Sammy Poofster and the exile...
ANYWAYS - I moved away after middle school and that was the end of the EP/Elle mixtape.
Fast forward to 2016 -
I get this message at midnight last night, "Hey Elle, how are you?"
EP?!?! Jesus, I haven't thought about you in YEARS.
"Hey! Isn't this a blast from the past?"
He is now a filmmaker in Boston. He teaches and also does actual tv/film production. After reminiscing for an hour he tells me he will be in Annapolis this weekend for a TV show he's filming and if he has time would like to see me.
Cue allll the childhood nostalgia.
This guy was most definitely my first love. Granted it wasn't the deep, intense love you feel nowadays when sex is involved but it was the first feeling of emotional attachment towards a boy I'd ever had.
Oh and sidenote - he remembers my birthday, "one of those dates I just can't forget" -- yep, I made a huge deal out of it even in 6th/7th/8th grade, typical Elle. AND his phone number has stayed the same since 6th grade...the only number I ever remembered/was the first # in my first cell phone.
This all being said -- we did meet up in college once. He went to a school 1hr from mine and I went up there to visit. I don't think we ever had sex BUT it was so long ago, we very well might have.
Anyhow, I find this all kinda crazy. I do hope to see him, catching up with someone who knew me way back when I had frizzy hair, braces and a giant nose, and loved me anyways...always fun times.
He said he'd text me today to let me know his schedule...Sooooo here's another one of those plot twists that makes life oh so interesting!
Cest la vie,
PS He's single right now too....
