Party On, Dude and Be Most Excellent to Each Other

Working with elementary kids, I usually feel pretty hip & cool. Mainly because I hear what they are talking about and see it firsthand (for the most part) with my own kids. Of course, there are times when I definitely feel old. Mainly because they do not have the background knowledge I do since I've lived longer.

Today, one 5th grader [Melissa: K.W.] took me back to the early 90s. We were talking and her eyes lit up talking about her celebrity crush. Edward Cullen? Nah, he grosses her out. The Jonas Brothers? Ewww No!
He, as in Keanu Reeves, is her celebrity crush. Her favorite movies include Point Break, Speed, & The Replacements.

I had to giggle to myself and give her a hug for making my day.

I love this girl. She is my twin! This is fabulous and took me WAY back to obsession days when I loved Keanu! :)

Yeah, I remember when everyone swooned when they heard his name. I also remember wondering what was so great about him. Of course, I hadn't seen too many of his movies then, either. Maybe that had something to do with my lack of obsessions.

Okay, not my type and never was, but how funny is that? It's like my big crush on Cary Grant "back in the day." (Um, that would be before he died.)
