Musings on the Word "Crush"

I’ve got a crush on you…. Sweetie pie.

There is nothing worse than an unrequited crush.

I know who you have a crush on!

Orange crush! Strawberry crush! I remember them as a treat in elementary
when I stayed after school to practice for UIL.

I’m crushed! That deep, sinking anchor in the pit of your stomach when your feelings are way beyond hurt.

I have a new crush today!

I need to crush the cans to take them to the recycling center.

The front end of my truck is completely crushed. Stupid delivery driver who tried to make a u-turn across two lanes of traffic!

Do you like me? Circle yes or no.

I’ll crush you like a trash compactor!

In my younger days, I actually had a crush on a male stripper.

Crush your enemies!

Crushed velvet.

The entire “Outsiders” gang – Ralph Macchio, C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze (whose mom actually taught a dance workshop I participated in), Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, and, I’m ashamed to admit it, Tom Cruise, and Leif Garrett. Remember HIM?

A crush is a secret.

Ricky Schroder in The Champ circa 1979. He was so cute as a little boy! And that movie made me cry.
