Five friends who highlight some of the magic (and less than magic) moments that influenced me
Tammy: General mischief making, mud pie baking, barbies, and Christmas tree flocking. Oh yeah, and how to bypass her house alarm's wiring on her bedroom window.
Diana: Barbies, homemade Orange Julius smoothies, Smurfs, piano playing, roller skating, pretend make out sessions with pillows
Sarah: Tea parties with Tang, fancy dancing in dress ups, trampolines, scones, swinging in the grape arbor, and the high school's Environmental Club
Melissa: Boys, crash cymbals playing, Dinosaurs pasta, church dances, foster care, walking, how to be a friend
Kathleen: Dish soaping and other forms of revenge, Under 21 club dancing, Asian home cooking, Lollapalooza madness
and then I grew up.
