They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. - Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol - US artist (1928 - 1987)

Growing up



As a child I was more than certain that I had been kidnapped
by this unstylish, conservative, suburban family in orange county.
I just knew that Halston or Warhol or anyone with style would soon arrive and rescue me.

I always felt exactly the same way! Although I thought it would be Buckminster Fuller or Richard Feynman. However, both of them expired soon after my birth before they could reach me, thus I was marooned with hillbillies in the midwest (though to this day my heritage claims can never be definitively disproved).

Holy smokes! I've never been one to say hot how a youngster looks, but you do. Beautiful hair and eyes and smile. If I saw that person today, I'd say "Someday, he's going to be a real hottie."

Oh were you not the most adorable thing! AW!

I felt the same way growing up in my very Hispanic household. And I was and still am as pale as they come, whereas most of my folks are darker. And the way my family behaved? I often thought I HAD to be adopted! AHAHAHAH! But as it turns out, I do look like my mom and dad combined, so there's no way to deny it.

Despite the Brady Bunch style, you were a cute kid!

I always thought the same thing!! It's only been in the last 10 or so years that I've become absolutely sure of it! They still won't admit it and tell me that I fell off the private ________ (insert name of any incredibly wealthy and stylish family here) train that was passing thru town but I know in my heart it's true!!

A cutie-patootie, indeed! There seems to be this question, "Must I be subject to this?" being asked. ;-)
