  •  Wasn't a crush, but my favorite of the girls (5+ / 0-)

    was little blond Karen. Annette was waaaaay too Mediterranean for me (consider that I was dogpaddling at the confluence of two very large Italian-American families).

    I still remember (for some undogly reason) a song that Karen sang once (in rain gear & an umbrella IIRC):

    Some days there just ain't no fish,
    (Ain't no perch, ain't no flounder)
    Some days you flounder for fish,
    Ain't no fish

    ***

    (this is the sound of me whistling the bridge--cripesake, ya dint speck me to remember all da woids didja?)
    Wish for a fish every day
    And you're wasting a wish,
    'Cause some days there just ain't no fish...
    From 50-some years ago...& I can't remember where I put the book I was reading yesterday...

    (So after I go through The Suddenly-I-Have-Hair-In-Embarrassing-Places Change, who do I spend my last year of HS chasing after in a maelstrom of testosterone, acne & insecurity? Who do I continue to pursue intermittently for the next waaaytoomany years, until she puts me out of my maniacal misery tour by marrying the man of her dreams? A little blond chickadee named Karen < eyes rolling skyward > ...)
