Goodbye Cheesy 80's Teen Movies
May John Hughes rest in peace. These movies shaped so much of who I was. They were a staple in my teen years. Of all his movies, my all time favorite is Pretty in Pink. Andie was everything I was. Blane, everything I wanted. Ok, so I wasn't as pretty as Andie but I sure felt like an outsider. Being from a different country, a Spanish country at that, in a small Texas town with a name like Astrid, can really make a teenager's life pretty bad. Sorry, don't want to throw myself a pity party. It just brings back all those memories.
I hope my kids have fun, innocent movies like this to watch as they are fighting puberty & the ways of teen love. Gawd, I have to go through all that w/ them TIMES THREE. Where is the nearest church? I need to start prayin'!
