Little shorts

Handwritten page of a diary dated October 1, 1976

even when I was 8, I thought it was creepy that my shorts were so tight — but now when I see pictures of it I want to crawl under the table.

UNFORTUNATELY my mom decided to show one of those pics to Pauline since they were talking about my childhood and how lucky I was to have a horse. Now Pauline can’t stop laughing about the shorts. We’ll be somewhere, at the drive-in or watching Baretta or playing cards, and she’ll all of a sudden crack up and I know she’s thinking of that photo.

She even made up a song one night, something like “Back in school he did not play sports, but he did ride a horse wearing tight little shorts.”
