Country Crock

I have a younger sister and when she and I were little we had a next-door neighbor named Ashley. Amy, Ashley, and I did everything together. We were always up to something exciting, and usually Ashley was behind it all. Oh the stories I could tell...

Anyway, the three of us spent so much time together that eventually we had our own "language" so to speak. We had secret names for each other, songs we'd made up, secret names for other people, etc.

While watching TV one day when I was probably 11, Amy 8, and Ashley 9 or 10, we noticed how, well, suggestive the Country Crock commercials were. We were very perceptive little buggers for such a young age. Or maybe I should say that Ashley was. From then on "Country Crock" became our euphemism for sex.

Here are some examples of how we might have used it:
"When I get married and have Country Crock..."
"I wonder if Big Tinkle (a secret name for someone's mom) and T-Roy (a secret name for a lifeguard at our pool named Troy...hey, I'm not saying these were sophisticated nicknames...) have Country Crock."
"Have you ever caught your parents having Country Crock?"

Well, you get the idea. I'm sure no one who ever overheard us figured out what the heck we were talking about. Yeah, right!

he he he. i remember doing similar things. like... i had this boy i liked and for the longest time my friend and i called him T.J. which stood for "The Jerk" because he seldom noticed me and when he did, he was mean. of course, eventually everyone figured out who TJ was and by that time i had moved on to a new guy named David that i think we called Fred....

i think i still play these games at times, more subtly and more sophisticatedly!

in 7th grade, H. had a crush on me. i'm not sure whether she had a nickname for me...but one day i discovered a picture she drew. of me. naked. it was quite flattering, if you know what i mean. naturally she was mortified, but we're still friends today.

she left her journal out. i was drawn in pencil on the inside of the front cover. next to me was a heart with my full name, first, middle, and last. now that i'm thinking about it, "crush" is probably putting it lightly.

(p.s. ... it wasn't the brightest thing i've ever done. i guess i had to learn the lesson sometime. this was at least 10 years before the internet and blogs were around, so password protection wasn't exactly an option.)

That's about one of the funniest things I've ever heard! I've never drawn a naked guy in my life...especially not in 7th grade. Too much!
