Thoughts from Mini-Me

I used to think that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lived in my unfinished basement. My sister and I watched the videos probably every day. The real characters, not the cartoons - cartoons are for sucks. It totally freaked me out (them living in our basement and all), but I also totally had a crush on them. Especially Rafael.

I used to think that The TMNT were the ones who sang along with The Beach Boys in the song "Wipe Out". I even had each voice picked out as each turtle.

I used to think that the Beach Boys song "Little Deuce Coup" was really "Little Miss Cook".

I used to think that the wolf from the cartoon "Peter and the Wolf" lived in my unfinished basement. Every time I'd turn off the lights, I'd run up the stairs as fast as I could, my heart pounding.

I still run up the stairs when it's dark, my heart pounding.

I used to think it was a very real possibility that if I could just meet my crush of 4 years, Dean Cain, he'd totally want to marry me. Then those huge rippling muscles would be mine. Good thing I didn't - he don't look so good now, do he?*

I used to think that I could TOTALLY be a surgeon by the time I was 21, like Doogie Howser (omigosh, did you hear he's gay?!). I'd be living with my best friend and we'd both be married to brothers, living in separate wings of our mansion with horses and Great Danes.

I used to think that condoms were bright yellow foam diapers.

I used to think that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were the closest to heaven I could get on Earth, and now I can't stand them.

I used to think that what my preschool teacher said was true: that every time she said something silly, she'd totally put her "brains in the pickle jar".

I used to be afraid of my great-grandma, and would hide under the table when we would go visit her.

I used to think that a multi-colored sweatshirt and coordinating stirrup sweat pants was the coolest outfit ever, and wore them with pride. Every. Single. Day.

I used to truly believe that Santa and his reindeer ate the cookies and carrots we set out every year.

I used to think that Kendall was the best name ever, and petitioned my parents to name my little sister that for the entire 9 months my mom was pregnant.

I used to not think about the way my body looked, and now I do. Every day.

I used to think that being a secretary was the most glamourous job out there.

Ah, the naivety of a child!


*this last sentence just KILLED me, the grammer! The horror!

This is such a sweet blog idea! I was thinking of things along this line because the other night I watched the movie "Newsies" for the first time in a couple years. You probably remember how obsessed with it I used to be. Well, watching it again this time I had to laugh at myself: When the Newsies are singing the song about buying the papers at the beginning they say something about Pulitzer making them eat the papers that they didn't sell, and until this time, I thought they really meant they had to eat them. What a mean man to make all those little boys eat all those newspapers! And what if you had 10 extra??? You'd be totally full after 1!

I TOTALLY have never seen "Newsies". I have always wanted to - in fact, the other day I was telling Cabe about that. How we used to put that "Seize the Day" song in the tape player (ah! tape players!) and dance around on your bed. Good times...
