You know that Barbara Mandrell song?
"I was country, when country wasn't cool"?
Okay, so maybe you don't know it, but it is a real song. And when I look at this picture of me ready for Christmas when I was about 9 years old, I can't help but hear these slightly twisted lyrics...
..."I was nerdy, when nerdy wasn't cool".
Oh well, that's okay, I thought I was absolutely fabulous in my sleeping cap and flannel gown. It appealed to the Laura Ingalls wanna-be in me that reigned supreme during my elementary years. If I couldn't marry Almonzo, at least I could look like her, sorta.
