Okay, so I've never participated in a "Throw-back Thursday" and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so. Otherwise, I was going to post a T for Tired blog today, as I'm running out of steam this week.
So here it is!
How old was I? Around eleven. Yes, I was completely obsessed with the movie, Annie, which had just come out, and I was even more obsessed with getting the part in our local production of the musical. I got the part of an orphan, Duffy, but my good friend got the part of Annie. She was much better than I would have been in the role.
My grandmother made the dress for me. I wish I still had either the dress or the genuine, trade-marked heart-shaped Annie locket I was wearing (complete with missing half). Alas, they are probably in a vintage clothing store or a relic museum somewhere. Ha!
