1967

Petrol Queen
1967 was the Summer of Love, but I was too young to participate...
 
My dad emailed this to me this morning. I'm almost too embarrassed to put this up, but I'll throw caution to the wind and show you what I looked like at age 10. God I was a geeky little kid. I hated being a geeky little kid. All geeky little kids got were wedgies, and I got my share. This is partly why I wanted to play guitar and be in a band, grow my hair out and be a freak, as hippies called themselves back then. Freaks didn't get wedgies, they got rehab. ;)
 
A lot has happened in 42 years. At least I've lived to tell about it.

See, it's because the coolest rock stars have a large element of geeky kid in them.

You're making a believer of me, Francesca! Yeah, I bet Mick Jagger tripped and stumbled over his swagger in the playground growing up every damned day. A total embarrassement to himself on the kickball field. Probably had so many wedgies he had blisters down there. But he overcame it! Hum...

Seriously! I bet that that was the case. The geekiness adds a little je ne sais quoi. And those wedgie blisters add the burn of determination to succeed.

"As God is my witness, I'll never have wedgies again!" Scarlet O'Hara --Mick Jagger.

Add a pen holder in the shirt pocket and I can already see those legions of BiC lighters filling the auditorium. Who would've thunk it?
