Someday I’ll Marry Julie-With-The-Pretty-Blonde-Hair

 I can tell by the roll of my sister’s eyes—she does not want to take me on the Magic Mushroom ride again. Silly Sis. It’s not the ride that makes me drag her by her sleeve into line again.

It’s Julie-with-the-Pretty-Blonde-Hair.

Finally, she succumbs and stomps into line, and I’m within inches of my love. When an intoxicating scent wraps around me, I wonder: Is it cotton candy or Julie-with-the-Pretty-Blonde-Hair?

It doesn’t matter. I could live here forever.

Our mushroom takes flight. I point, unable to contain my enthusiasm. “Someday, I’ll marry Julie-with-the-Pretty-Blonde-Hair,” I yell.

Sis rolls her eyes. Again.

Just last week, I had fun in a Flying Triceratops with my grandson, Tommy, at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Though I’m pretty sure, at the age of four, it was flying a Triceratops that made Tommy squeal with joy, and not Julie-with-the-Pretty-Blonde-Hair.

I must admit, I squealed a little, too.  🙂

  4. Dear Jan,

    How sweet. When my eldest son, Shannon was four he was going to marry Paula-with-the-pretty-blonde-hair. He ended up marrying Sayda with the pretty black hair. 😉 It’s all good. 😉 Love your story. And of course Tommy is just adorable.

    I just love this. So perfectly told! Julie-with-the-pretty-blonde-hair probably doesn’t even know he exists…

    Someday perhaps… who knows and the sister would still roll her eyes. But that would be some…day.
    Nicely written.
