This pond understands

January 31st, 2008

I spent the better part of my teenage years faithfully in love with my dear Superman, Dean Cain.

Dean and I had a long-standing date every Sunday night on ABC for four years.

And let me tell you, I was true and faithful to this man to the bitter end.

(Don’t laugh, Jesse.)

I collected every single picture and article of him that I ever saw in a magazine.

And I put them all in my “love folder”, so I could take them out and adore them regularly between our Sunday night dates.

(C’mon, I’m serious, stop laughing, Jesse!)

Then Charming happened to see my “love folder” one time when I was going through some boxes and happened upon it.

I had forgotten about it (sorry, Dean!!) and Charming immediately busted up.

“Aren’t you gonna throw that away now?” he asked through his laughter.

I looked at him in complete and utter horror.

What?!” I replied, “Throw away Dean?!”

Apparently, Charming did not appreciate what Dean and I had together.

But that’s okay, because earlier this month Charming, Bubbers and I went to an island.

And I found this pond.

It was immediately apparent that this pond truly understood me.

And my adolescent obsession for Superman.

Thank you, pond.

(I can still hear you laughing, Jesse!)

Sorry. Still laughing. Wait just a minute….

Okay. Nope, still laughing.

Okay. Yes, I vaguely recall you liking the show. I can dimly remember hearing about Dean… all the time.

I had a box that I threw out after Cori and I got married too.

I’m glad you found such an understanding pond. Isn’t nice when the universe streches out a hand as if to say, “Its OK. I get you.”

LOL!!!! You totally crack me up, girl!! If there’s anyone who heard way too much about my adolescent crushes it was you. I don’t know how you did it… :)

Aw, that’s such a nice way to look at my dear pond. And you’re absolutely right!

I LOVED that show!! :) And, um, of course I enjoyed Mr. Cain, for his, uh, superior talent for acting and all his musc- I mean, his other, um, talents. ;)

“Love folder”! You crack ME up! :) We would have totally been best friends back then!! I kept a small picture of Dean “lamenated” with clear packing tape in my wallet in high school. It made for a great pick-me-up. heehee ;) The picture came from a TV guide that I actually rescued from the bottom of our recycle bin! *sigh* Weren’t Sunday nights wonderful?? :) I was so heartbroken when the series ended…

Love the pond! Thanks for sharing the beautiful pics, and for bringing a smile to my face.

…Now where DID I put that old wallet?… ;)

LOL!!! I LOVE it!! We TOTALLY would have been best friends back then, Melissa!! Your wallet picture story is hilarious–I’m going to be laughing about that for days!! :):) (Psst, if you find your wallet, let me know! Then you could come over and I’ll dig out the “love folder”. But don’t tell Charming or Bill, okay??) :)
