Do you ever wonder what happened to that weird girl who spent hours /days / weeks collecting and cataloging Star Wars trading cards and wishing she could incite interglactic war? (Or at least rock the double-bun?)
Or the girl who daydreamed of wearing one-piece, bellbottom jumpsuits and feathered hair, while brandishing a gun and big, shiny pearly whites…all while being a part of a covert, all female crime fighting trio?
Or the one who made na-na-na-na-na sounds when she ran in slow-motion to signify she was actually running at super-speed???
*guiltily raises hand* Well, here I am!
So was I cool? Maybe not as much as I’d hoped…but what little girl of the 70s didn’t want to be the kind of liberated woman who could give a smack down and still have all the “foxy” men drooling at her feet?
Plus, these ladies had the coolest hair. (Way cooler than that Dorothy Hamill chick!)
At least until the 80s came along, and Olivia Newton John taught me that disco roller skating was what all the cool kids were into…
So, who did you want to be, because I know I wasn’t alone???
And for all you teens out there who have no idea what I’m talking about, I have four words for you: Go. Ask. Your. Mom.
