Fool #1

Did I ever tell you about my romance with Brenda Lee? I always had a huge crush on her. I guess that it was around 1959. My mom had dropped me off at the armory to see a big rock'n'roll show featuring Brenda Lee, Ray Peterson, Johnny Preston and Benny Joy. I was minding my own business standing in line at the box office when Little Miss Dynamite strolled right up next to me and asked, "What time is it?" I think that I managed to mumble something clever, along the lines of, "I don't know."

"Do they dance in there?" she asked.

Always the ladies' man, I managed, "I don't know."

She stood there for a few seconds which seemed like an eternity to me and sauntered off. We never saw much of each other after that.
