"Hi, you're Super!"

I was in the 3rd grade before I had my first real crush. I won't say her name, because the last thing she wants is to find her name associated with some post on a weirdo's blog about a crush he had almost 30 years ago. So, we'll just call her CMT, no relation to the Country Music Station.

I'm not sure what it was about CMT that had such an effect on me. Maybe it was her raspy voice, or maybe it was that long curly hair of hers. Regardless of the reason, I fell, and fell hard. And I made sure she was aware of my feelings the only way 8-9 year old me knew how; by saying nothing, and staring longingly at her from a distance. It might surprise you, but back then  I wasn't the confident, sexual Tyrannosaurus that I am today. I was a shy, awkward mess around other boys, let alone the opposite sex. Around my crush, I was a two legged disaster, capable of making a fool of myself at any moment.

Super 7 Mystery Box

They say it helps to know people. Well, I say it helps to know people that know people. Way back in October of '18, I met an acquaintance of Chelsea's at our bi-annual Halloween party. We got to talking, and it turned out their sibling worked for Super 7. If you're not familiar with Super7, they're the ones putting out the Reaction line of retro styled figures, as well as taking over the Masters of the Universe Classics line. So, they're doing some pretty cool stuff. Anyhow, when I found this out, I started gushing about how much I loved the company, and what they did. I guess there was a whole other conversation going on during this time, and I was told, "make a list, and send it to me". I figured it was a half serious offer, but then again, what if it wasn't? I went through the site, made up a wish list, and emailed it.

Imagine my surprise when my wife brought home this box a couple of weeks later.
