I Grew Up a Screw Up :Childhood,TV Crushes, and other random behaviors

Where do I start? I was a weird kid with  big imagination. I climbed trees, stayed busy keeping my mother on her toes, and was always up to some kind of project.
Once I was exploring in the subdivision next to ours. I actually cut through a field of hay and ended up at a roadside store where 2 concerned elderly men saw me picking picking flowers alongside the highway. Turned out I had told them that I fell off my horse and lost him. My mom and dad punished me of course.
Mom also was convinced by her friend Gail to enter me in a local beauty padgeant.When I got on stage I had to courtsy.Instead I turned my little ruffled panties toward the audience and gave them a show they weren't expecting.
 Also as every child has experienced, TV makes an impression .Funny thing is that when I was a little girl, I was afraid of the symbols of comedy and tragedy, very hilarious fact  because of the drama queen I later became.
My first major TV crush was Bobby Sherman, then David Cassidy. I know you readers wanna gag but it wasn't as nutty as falling for Adam West and Burt Ward, TV's original Batman and Robin. What even didn't make more sense was my fantasies about Batman and Robin whisking me away to the batcave and having their way with me. I was only 9 years old.
Then there was Steve Austin the Six Million Dollar Man. Good lord I had it bad for Lee Majors.Then there was William Shatner, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill. Memories of TV and movie crushes just flooded my mind. Crushes on girls came later.
