Day 10 – Discuss your first love and first kiss.
I shall not name her for she has suffered enough already.
I was very young, maybe five years old and I made her a lovely hand-made Valentine’s Day card. Nothing was mentioned for a couple of years but by the time I was eight or nine years old I discovered that it had been a talking point for some time.
The reason my young love life had been the subject of local gossip was because my first love happened to be one of my primary school teachers daughters and my teacher almost never let me forget it when I was in her class.
The primary school teacher is a friend of the family, so even now some thirty odd years later, the fact that I sent her daughter a valentines card can still crop up in conversation and is something that has both haunted me and her daughter alike.
