Marlena? Lolita? No it is Amy

Marlene, Maarleena, Marlenna.....I was called Marlene after the sex icon Marlene Dietrich relentlessly for about 6 years by a family friend at the lake.  I also received whistle cat calls from this man for years and years,  I was teased about my fat ankle pants (bell bottoms)  I did not know it, I was doe eyed and innocent but I received lecherous looks from this man for years and years.  (I had a deep voice and beauty marks on my face like Marlene)

Then one day when I when I was 13 or 14 I get this suggestion from my mother that I visit my sister at college.  My sister did not even like me.  Why I agreed to it is beyond me, trusting doe eyed, I went to Syracuse by bus to stay at E.T.'s and visit sister.  I recall feeling very groggy the next morning and shopping for tan boots and eating honey bun pastries.  My mother used to laugh about the term swinger, but I did not know what swinger meant.  She called me Lolita at about the time I made that visit.

Incidently, about that time I developed a jaw click with every bite of food I chewed which did not resolve until orthodontics.  Why does one get TMJ?  I happens when you open your jaw too wide according to the orthodontist.

My mother had an edge that she did not share with all who knew her.  She and I had trouble getting along.  According to sis, (years later) she had an infatuation with ET.  Now ET wanted disability and wanted my father to write a medical report to help him get it which, my father did not do.  Perhaps he was not in on that episode of swinging ones children.  They gave us girls Playboy magazines to read from age eight up, when we visited my grandfathers apartment.
