Emilio Estevez. Go ahead. You can say it. Will Ferrell, Night at the Roxbury. Emiliooooo! Emiliooooo! Crazy as it seems to use this New York native actor as a subject of the A-Z challenge, he was the first who came to mind when I thought, "E." Why? Because, when I was a little girl, I really and truly thought I would marry him someday.
No, I'm not kidding.
Right around 1990, when I was twelve and Young Guns II came out, I fell in love with Mr. Estevez. Forget that he's sixteen years my senior. I had pictures of him pinned to my walls, every movie of his I could get my hands on (all of which I watched several times a week), and even a fake driver's license (made by yours truly) featuring my full married name.
So crazy about him was I that when he married Paula Abdul in 1992, I cried into my pillow. How could he do this to me? Imagine how much longer it's going to take for us to get together, if ever now, thank you SO very much Miss freaking stupid Abdul! *sniff sniff*
Obviously, I got over it, though the memory still makes me laugh and I still very much enjoy Emilio Estevez flicks.
Now, I've moved on to a cougar crush on Bruno Mars.
Just something about a guy who can sing and do-wop!
Who was your childhood crush?
