Bedspread Fantasy and Reality


Here we have a small snippet of my childhood, if asked which bedspread I wanted there is no doubt in my mind that the six year old me would have chosen Star Trek. I was forced to watch it every Saturday morning when my sister had a fleeting crush on William Shatner (she now shivers when you mention that) and I became hooked for life.

My mother would have bought the Sesame Street set, maybe due to her hatred of Science Fiction or maybe just to keep me a kid a little while longer. Either way, I have no umbrage about this but in a small way by denying the trek, you fostered my geek drive mom......

AND if you happened to glance at the Farah Fawcett poster on your ceiling at night...those science fiction theme sheets turn into science "friction" if ya get my drift...you'll go where no hand has gone before!

I had my parent's old hand-me-down queen bed growing up, so as much as I *wanted* Star Trek or Star Wars sheets, I got -- well, flowers. Green flowers. 'Cause that's what my mom had that fit my bed. Sigh.

Holy. Crap. I had those big bird sheets. I totally remember talking to it at night.
I was a strange child.

I owned 2 sets of cartoon bedsheets. The first one was the Looney Tunes, the second one, the Smurfs. In fact, the fuzzy Smurfs bedspread is on my bed...
