The Shoe of Salvation

SHOE: Look at me. Am I not wonderful?

LADY: You are the most wonderful shoe in the world. I fall to my knees and weep with pleasure when I am with you.

... ...

LADY: You are BEAUTY. You are TRUTH. In you I find my SALVATION.

SHOE: Thank you. You are a nice lady.

When was the last time you had a crush? You know, in that school girl/boy kinda way?

Was just chatting to some friends about stalkers - remembering back when A and i used to 'stalk' this guy (i think his name was Yuki) at the tram stop... and then we kinda followed him to his home... That sheer exhilaration whenever we saw him.

And what about now? in our (newfound) adulthood, are these 'crushes' allowed? Do we really have a crush where we are irrationally attracted to someone even though: (a) we dont know them in any meaningful way, (b) nothing would ever happen, and (c) we really dont have anything in common with them or (d) all of the above. Logically, perhaps we simply like the idea of someone like 'the crush', someone with those unique set of qualities which they have. Perhaps its just the idea of having something that we dont have, or that we dont even really want, but seems like a 'good idea'?
