Aww, this story is just too damn cute…
It brings back some very sweet memories. When I was in 8th grade I fell in love for the first time with a new kid in my class. His name was David, and he had the most beautiful, shiny blond hair. I remember that it looked so soft (turns out it was). Dave was a “first” for me in other ways too. Meeting him and experiencing the feelings I had for him is what finally made me realize that I was gay.
However, we didn’t have iPhone XS’s around, so instead, we burned up the hardline for hours on end.
Thanks for the memories, James.
