Spring! When a young man’s fancy turns to love. Only it usually isn’t really love, but the fairy-gold version of it: The crush. The everywhere-ache of heart and gut that leaves one breathless and frazzled.
Josh and Keith talk about what is is to be crushed in such a fashion: Cartoon crushes from childhood, TV crushes, real-life schoolyard ones and beyond.
Learn of the mannish schoolmarm teacher who won a young Keith Field’s heart by her Tolkien posters. Josh’s free-giveaway phone fiasco and how it nearly undid him. The lengths to which young boys go for no reason when in dread service to the whims of the crush! All this and more. Crazy Grandma-Field stories of racism and sumo, too.
