I never should have listened to them. I was in the 4th grade and we were getting ready for the Christmas play. It was a play the whole class was going to put on where we dressed up like toys and sang songs beneath a Christmas tree.
All of the guys in the class were sitting around talking about what kind of toys they should dress up like.
Should I be a G.I. Joe?
Should I be a football player?
Should I be a cowboy?
I was going to dress up like a football player too, but then Ammie, this cute girl in our class, said, “Why don’t you dress up like baby dolls? It’ll be funny.”
A couple of the guys laughed about how funny it was and then my buddy Jay said, “Yeah why don’t we? Why don’t we dress up like baby dolls?”
