Sometimes life imitates art -or- vice versa.
I saw a video on the internet. It was about a statue of Marilyn Monroe in Chicago based on that famous scene in the movie The Seven Year Itch. That brought back some memories. Now I had not seen the movie - it was made before a similar event happened to me as a boy. Seeing this video brought back the memories.
I was in elementary school at the time - third grade I think. As we did at the time, we were outside for recess and it was time to go to the water fountain to get a drink. Ahead of me was one of the girls in my class who I had a little interest in. I think she may have been a blond too!!! She was getting a drink from the faucet when along came a breeze and blew up her dress for a moment. Yes ... that was an experience for me. It is not like I really saw anything since she had shorts under her dress but it was definitely something I remember.
Come to think of it, I never knew about the movie The Seven Year Itch until much later when another movie came out that played on that same scene - The Woman In Red.
Ahhh MEMORIES. That is one of the things I enjoy when I read. You never know until you read something and it brings back memories. Do you have memories come back when you read?
