It’s A Hard Knock Life - Behind The Awkwardness

“I was 6 years old.  My mother was obsessed with me being Annie because I had curly hair.  So, she fluffed it up, bought me a red dress and a stuffed dog and had my picture taken.  I can’t sing, I can’t dance and had no interest in theater.  Hopefully, the photo was enough for her dream.”

    My sister and I both have red, curly hair and were born in 81 and 83. We spent a good portion of our childhood with strangers saying, “Is your name Annie?” or “If you’re not an Annie, your parents blew it!” People can be so charming.
