Sorry, wrong Doug Thompson

Two Facebook friends requests lately from women who say they remember me from school.

One recalled riding to Virginia Tech in the third or fourth grade, which is a problem because I was in school in Farmville — not Floyd — in the third and fourth grade.  Another talked of having a crush on me for 12 years of school.  I went to Floyd Elementary School in the fist and second grade but left the county for several years before returning to attend Floyd County High School as a freshman, sophomore and senior (skipped my junior year).

Can’t imagine anyone having a crush on me for 12 minutes, much less a dozen years.

I think both confused me with the Doug Thompson who teaches and coaches at Floyd County High School. He’s younger and better looking.

I’m flattered ladies but you got the wrong Doug.
