Much to My Surprise
I am a fan of Glee. I know... It took me by surprise but not as much by surprise as finding out that I thought the kid who plays Finn, a sorta goody goody football player, was H-O-T! Cory Monteith is super cute. I couldn't believe it. SO not the kind of guy I normally think 'Hmmm...' about. Clean cut and probably a baby.
With the exception of my husband I always lean towards boys who seem to be headed for jail. The ones who carry beer bongs in the trunk of their car or who skateboard naked at public parks. Not the clean cut, choir boys. I usually don't get it when the college girls I work with talk about these teen stars. Give me an Anthony Bourdain or a Mike Ness any day.
My next thought (although the whole time I'm thinking 'Man, this is a KID I shouldn't think he's so cute!') was that obviously he's gay. The boys that I have liked that have been clean cut have turned out to be gay. (Some of you are now snickering because you know who I'm talking about) That must be the answer!
I know, this is taking up a lot of my thought process but you have to understand... I have standards and this kid just didn't meet the criteria. Then it happened. Sitting on the breakroom table at work was some weekly magazine with a cover story of Glee. I non-chalantly picked up the magazine and started flipping pages. There he was. My secret, guilty crush. The boy that could get me sent to jail under the right circumstances. I read. I breathed a sigh of relief. I was still the same old Cheryl. My tastes were not changing. This hottie who plays a choir boy high school kid on tv was actually a 27 year old high school drop out. Thank God!
