So, there I am. Sitting on the uptown 2 train heading home after a long day at work. Out of the corner of my eye I spot a dead-ringer look-a-like to my favorite singer of my childhood - Charlotte Diamond. I immediately thought about how jealous I was that Megan Dachtler got invited up on stage in 1991 at her concert at the Civic Center in B-town. She was always a lucky girl. I believe it was for the very popular hit "Love Bug." I laughed to myself thinking that I havent even thought of Charlotte since first grade and now here she was - right in front of me in the crowded subway car.
Then my eyes shifted to a man in a yellow rain coat. I couldnt believe it. His outfit was the EXACT costume I wore for "The Fisherman and His Wife" - an obvious hit at our Buena Vista Elementary school play in 1995. I remembered how pissed I was that I didnt get the lead role and had to wear the UGLY yellow rain coat and carry a fishing pole.
What are the odds? At least I was entertained by the funny details of these childhood events in my head on the way home. And realized that I must have been a very jealous child.
