Crush: a brief but intense infatuation for someone, especially someone unattainable or inappropriate:..(Oxford English Dictionary)
I was driving into town today with my children and i got myself all excited because a classic car pulled up next to us at the traffic lights. It was a Morris Minor. The last ones were manufactured in 1971, so this one chugging away next to us was pretty old I imagine, but it was in pristine condition. I went into a bit of a boring detailed explanation about the Morris Minor because I am a bit of a classic car geek. My children were not in the least bit interested, but it kind of made my day. I really need to get a life, I know!
So, I had a brief infatuation with a Morris Minor today, but realised that the car was unattainable and inappropriate.
For your delectation, here is a picture of a Morris Minor 😉
