watching SIXTEEN CANDLES for the first time

I thought my sister and I were the only ones who got felt up by grandmothers!! Apparently this is pervasive grandmotherly behavior.

I didn't see Sixteen Candles til I was in my twenties, sometime in the late 1990s. It had kind of lost its angsty charm for me by then - I still have never seen Breakfast Club. ANYhoo.

My grandmother never felt me up, but then, there's never - um - been much to feel.

That movie was the one I used to watch (on videotape of course) whenever I needed cheering up back in my young single days. It's hard to believe what Anthony Michael Hall looks like now, compared to then!

*shaking head*

You poor thing. What was your childhood like?

Wait! Don't answer that!

I saw that movie while it was still in theaters.
