In the fourth grade I was in love with Vera Harper. We had Mrs. Watson’s homeroom together and most other classes. She was a blonde hair blue eyed beauty. She was sexy too but at that time I didn’t know what sexy was, I just knew she tripped my trigger. Every Friday she would come to school dressed in her green Girl Scout uniform, her blonde hair in pigtails wearing her black and white saddle oxfords. I used to look forward to Fridays every week just to watch her as she walked through the halls. I think she secretly liked me too because she would talk to me sometimes really nice and smile at me in the halls. I was a Cub Scout too and Vera had a thing for a man in uniform. I of course never told her I loved her or sent her a note from her secret admirer, but she knew... I just loved her from afar and my heart would ache for her every time she walked by me. Later that year I got kicked out of the Cub Scouts for conduct unbecoming. That pretty much sabotaged any chance we might ever have. Vera never looked at me quite the same after my discharge.  I later saw her on the playground with a fifth grader named Frank Wright. Frank was a Boy Scout with aspirations to be an Eagle Scout. I suffered my first broken heart right on that dirt playground when I saw them together. I’ll never forget that feeling. Frank was teaching her to tie a slip knot; I could never compete with that. I hope her and Frank are still together and I hope he made Eagle Scout. To this day I still have a soft spot for Girl Scouts and I buy their cookies every year.
