As fate would have it I was dating a girl who liked a show called "Melrose Place". God did I hate that show...until I saw her again. There she was my old flame Alyssa Milano. It started all over again. From that point on I started loving Melrose Place for one reason: Alyssa Milano. Yeah I broke up with my girlfriend but I still had Alyssa. And once again I was handed another fate when I learned she was leaving the show. Guess what Melrose Place...I hate your guts again.
So 1998 came along and noticed in my TV Guide that a new show called "Charmed" was debuting. And guess who was in it. Oh yes Alyssa Milano. And once again I was there for every step and every scene she was in. When she wasn't in the scene I didn't care. For 8 glorious seasons she was on my TV screen. And I loved every minute of it.
So here we are in 2014. My current celebrity crush is Aubrey Plaza. Don't get me wrong she is very pretty. But alas Ms. Plaza you have to share my celeb crush heart with one other lady. And her name is...Alyssa Milano. Yes I know Alyssa is married with a kid now. Like all good grown ups do. But I guess if for 25 years I have her in my heart then I will be taking it to my grave even when I get married and have kids.
You may be wondering "Richard where is the ode?" Well my friends you just read it. I wrote this at 7:00 am on a Sunday morning with nothing but love on my mind for one special celebrity. She may never meet me or even know I am existing on this planet but it is good to know that I can rest easy knowing that I have just told the entire world that I indeed love Alyssa Milano. Man that felt good getting that off my chest. So I shall now get going with my day. It will consist of church and football watching. But periodically I will in fact be thinking about Alyssa Milano. Because I am just super weird like that. And I'm okay with that.
