When I was 16 years old, I had a mad crush on Jimmy B. I mean stuttering in his presence, unable to eat, stomach flipping, almost puking - kind of crush.
I imagined being his girlfriend. I fantasized about marrying him. I pictured little me and Jimmy B's. But I never pictured attending his 40th birthday party 3,000 miles away from Jersey.
Isn't funny how things change over 20 years?
Now I babble freely in his presence, down tacos with him (on a very stable stomach) and ask for advice about guys I could consider marrying. My mad crush at 16 is my buddy. And if, at that age, you'd asked me how life would turn out, I never would have predicted that one day we'd end up in Southern California toasting 40 on a Saturday night.
What's something you never would have predicted about your life?
