OK - Now that the laughter's subsided a bit...
Julie - *sigh* - Blonde hair, blue eyes, must have been almost six... I really liked her (loved then, I think was the word...) so I decided to give her a "ring."
The ring was a plastic band from one of those games where you can string the circles together... Well anyway, I shyly (yes, I used to be shy) approached her whilst twirling on the merry-go-round. As soon as it stopped, I stood there with my toe twisting in the dirt, eyes looking anywhere but at her, and held out my hand with the "ring."
She asked me what it was...
"It's a ring, stupid."
She got all excited, shoved it on her finger and bowled me over with the second sloppiest kiss I've ever had. (The first sloppiest, I'm afraid, was much later and would have to be told in Adult...) Anyway - that about covered the relationship. She kept the ring and stopped talking to me (a portent of the future, perhaps..?)
I still remember her... we were friends after that... But lost track of her when my family moved to Colorado - too bad, bet she turned out to be a fox!
