I took to boys like I was on a fast trip down a one-lane highway, but that was because I had no idea that I could be with a girl. A perfect middle-class 1950s girl, I went to college, dated boys and got married at 22. I tried being the perfect wife but failed miserably.
I will confess to having had the occasional girl crush over the years. I can even recall their names: Terry in high school, Ginny in college, Lee and Penny as an adult. ...If any of them had kissed me then the way Sybil kisses me now, I probably would have been a goner.
