Yikes – could this be any more 70s?
Orange net curtains, avocado and goldenrod floral wallpaper and, yes, that is a beaded macrame plant hanger behind my dad’s head.
I loved those tone-on-tone green Dr. Denton jammies. I used to pretend that I was a praying mantis when I wore them. I’d sneak up on my prey, arms crooked like claws. I’d grab it and devour it’s soft, squishy innards with my mandibles.
It’s a shame my folks didn’t have a Super-8…footage of me chewing on pillows would be priceless.
Happy Hallowe’en – here’s hoping you get a chance to celebrate your inner ‘mantis.
