And Chandler Bing in sweater vests;

Russell Howard and his lazy eye;

Prince Harry and his posh ginger ways

And most politicians with their awkward arms

You just can’t help feeling slightly fuzzy

Each time you see a weird celebrity crush

Looking pained on red carpets

Or saying wrong things at all the wrong times.

The girls in my tutor group are only twelve, but they are all so interested in who their thirty something teacher might have a crush on. They all love blonde haired boys in the newest Netflix dramas whereas I have these weird celebrity crushes and they look at me like I’m crazy.

But me – I can’t get enough of the slightly geeky older man and they all look like they’ve stumbled out of Oxford University and don’t quite know how to function in the real world.

I do wonder what it is that draws me to these types. There must be something about that slight disconnect with the rest of the world that I find endearing. I do know that I’m not alone and there are a lot of people out there who think that bedroom walls should be plastered with pictures of Louis Theroux.

Much Love

    I’m a book nerd, Rachel, so I know just what you mean about having crushes on people other than the hot Netflix celebrities or Gen-Z music stars. There are a lot of us about, I think, and we have as much right to our crushes as the young ‘uns do.

    In related news, I discovered something recently about one of my celebrity crushes, the only one I haven’t yet met in person, that has now left me wondering if we might be related. Awkward.
