One of the the things I remember most about my very early years in Brooklyn is our radio. Lots of homes had radios in the 60’s, right? And they were on often.
Ours was on top of the refrigerator and it looked much like the one pictured here. I remember staring at that thing each morning in between spoonfuls of farina and wondering how it worked.
I figured there just HAD to be people in there. Tiny little people talking and singing. How else would it work? I thought. And one day I was going to break it open and introduce myself to them.
Of course that day never came. We moved to Jersey, the radio was mysteriously replaced by a stereo, I got an 8-track tape player and by then I was too busy adjusting to the fact that there really wasn’t an ‘r’ at the end of the word ‘soda’ to wonder if I’d every meet those little people.
So here’s today's’ Blog Challenge question: Tell us about something you thought of as a child that’s just totally goofy. It might be people in the radio or boogey men in the basement (I got a lot of running done back in those days, just running up the stairs away from that guy.)
This one might take a little bit of time to answer – that’s okay. You have until the end of the month to answer the questions posted for the month in order to receive your free artwork. So, think about it.
This is going to be fun – looking forward to reading your answer.
