What did I used to think?
I thought Brown-Eyed Girl was by the Rolling Stones.
I thought Pokemon was a Jamaican porno.
I thought Javelins only came in orange.
I thought Mr. Rogers should just leave the damn sweater and sneakers on.
I thought Herbie the Love Bug was the next step towards flying cars.
I thought I saw that guy from Electric Company in the movies.
I thought I was in love.
I thought I was in love again.
I thought baseball was boring unless I was playing it.
I thought we should have waited in line to see that blockbuster Pink Panther movie.
I thought it was normal for a 9 year old to mow 2 acres with a riding lawn mower even thought there were gullies.
I thought it was normal for a 3 year old to wander all over an apartment complex.
I thought it was normal for a 7 year old to have his first real kiss with a half-Italian girl behind the propane tank, and never forget her or her name.
I thought I should touch the electric fence many times just to be sure.
I thought it would be too embarrassing to lose my virginity right in front of her parents’ house the day before she left.
I thought it was a strong recovery to lose it instead to a 20 year old college chick.
I thought this post would be more funny, and less a reminiscent discourse.
I thought I was ready for an instant family.
I thought I was ready for more kids.
I thought it was time to get a house.
I thought everything would fall into place.
And I still think that!
