When I was a little girl, I was normal! I wore dresses, and had stuffed animals. I wore Mickey Mouse ears, and was... cute, or so I've been told.
What happened you ask? 2 things changed the course of my life forever!
1. My Mom let me listen to the White Album on our old, hutch style, stereo system. It had a radio, turntable, and 8 track. I loved pushing the button on the 8 track and skipping from song to song. The White Album, is not the Beatles best album in my opinion... but it has some of my favorite songs! They were on a lot of drugs at the time, and maybe not the best influence for my young mind. I still LOVE Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da, Glass Onion, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Rocky Raccoon, and one of my all time favorite songs... Blackbird.
2. My Mom took me to see Grease. At the end of the movie... When Sandy come to the carnival in the leather jacket, spandex pants, with the red heels and big hair... smoking a cigarette, I said "She is so pretty, I want to grow up and be just like her!" Today Olivia Newton John turned 64 years old... and I still look at her in that movie and think... Bad Ass Chick!
See, I could have grown up normal... But the Beatles and Olivia Newton John had other plans!
