I Am a Fool

There was something about that song that always made me think of… Carol, the girl I was too shy to ask out.  We went to High School together and I flirted with her all the time, but we did not date.  Her sister was a cheerleader and my brother played football, so we were always standing on the sidelines watching and rooting for them.  I was sort of a class clown, and I knew how to make her laugh, but she had a side kick who was always with her and that always made it much more difficult for me to approach her.  Her friend was nice, but to me it seemed like she couldn’t take a hint, as I wanted to be with Carol and have her all to myself.  When you love someone, you want to spend every moment with them, but eventually I realized that she enjoyed her individuality and really didn’t care too much for my feelings.  I couldn’t get any alone time with her, so I knew that I had to settle for being put in the friend zone and nothing would ever come out of our relationship.  It is still painful when I hear this song, but thankfully it is not played that often these days.

  1. I never had a Carol… I did date a girl named Mary Moore….I turned to her and asked her…is your middle name…and before I could finish…she cut me off and said NO it’s not Tyler. The only red head I ever dated.
