The conversation between my wife and myself this morning in the car went
something like this:
WIFE: Do you remember My Buddy?
WIFE & MYSELF (singing): My Buddy, my buddy, wherever I go, he goes …
WIFE: That thing was creepy. It looked like a weird ventriloquist’s dummy.
MYSELF: I know. They came out with one for girls too: Kid Sister.
WIFE & MYSELF (singing): Kid Sister, kid sister, wherever I go, she goes …
MYSELF: I think that was worse.
WIFE: My brother used to love GI Joe.
MYSELF: That was a good show. Who was your favorite? I liked Snake Eyes the best (does ninja move while driving). I bet you liked The Indian.
WIFE: My brother liked Snake Eyes but I always thought the girl characters were better. They could kick butt and always had good hair.
I guess you had to be there. And maybe even then.
