Scenes from my childhood, part 1
The setting: The family dining room. A sunny afternoon. My twelve-year-old self has been going through my ritual of looking through magazines and picking out favorite photos, with my sister seated at the opposite end of our long table.
Sister: "I think it's strange that you only have pictures of men. Look, you've got Tom Cruise, Tom Selleck, Harrison Ford - why don't you have pictures of any women?"
Me: "But I do have pictures of women."
Cue hurried scrambling through masses of hunky movie and TV star photos.
Me: "See? Here's Dolly Parton."
