My loves – they’re droppin’ like flies

What the dip is going on? First Davy Jones and now Larry Hagman? I am distraught. Highly highly distraught.

My childhood crushes are now dropping like flies. This could be because most of my childhood crushes were either musicians or actors from the 60s, but I refuse to acknowledge the limitations of: death, aging, and the absence of time travel. Also, yes, for many years – including a two year reoccurrence in my early twenties – I had an extremely significant crush on Larry Hagman as Tony Nelson in I Dream of Jeannie.

Who wouldn’t?

Who wouldn’t?

There was something about that stern face and constant disapproval that I found extremely appealing, even at a young age. This might be the genesis of my attraction to emotionally unavailable men, but –damn- if Tony Nelson didn’t look smokin’ when he once again verbally expressed his outrage at Jeannie’s bullshit.

What kind of fucked up nonsense are you going to get me into today?

What kind of fucked up nonsense are you going to get me into today?

So it is with a heavy heart that I bid adieu to my childhood dreamboat, Tony Nelson. I will never be able to spend endless hours watching seasons 1 & 2 after a night of whiskey drinking and not think of your scowling hotness with both fondness and regret.

May you dream of Janie. In heaven.

May you dream of Janie. In heaven.

Also, this is a specific Tony Nelson love. I can’t abide by that JR bull.

Thanks for the memories
