My first boyfriend was Jeff Wood. We were in the first grade. I thought he was cute. He bought me a ring. It was wonderful . . . until I realized that I couldn’t marry him. My first name is Holley. If we married, I would be Holley Wood. Like Hollywood. My mom and I still laugh about it.
I’m not sure why it was devastating to me. I don’t remember how many days I was upset. It really couldn’t be all that bad, could it?
Well, he moved to the next town in the second grade. I haven’t seen him since. So much for getting married and being Mrs. Holley Wood.
