THINGS I DID IN THE 80S THAT MADE ME A WEIRD KID

  1. For almost a year I dressed like Val Kilmer's character, Chris Knight, from REAL GENIUS.
  2. Found comfort in the fact that at any given time River Phoenix and I could be looking up at the sky at the same time.
  3. Had my parents create an art room in our basement where I spent hours making teeny tiny tacos out of clay.
  4. Started chronicling everything that happened during my day in a notebook because I wanted to be like Harriet the Spy.
  5. Searched often in our basement for a treasure map or clues because I wanted something cool to happen like in GOONIES.
