Go Ask Alice Cooper

My daughter is floating through the house singing, "School's out for summer!" She and her friends are on cloud nine as they plot and plan mischief to get into over the summer. Keep her busy, my mind keeps advising. So busy she won't have time to call the boy she's had a crush on for a solid hour the last day of school. But I know it's all innocent - for now. Being that she is my offspring, I know I must watch carefully for any signs of demonic possession.
When I think back to when I was her age, it was a different Alice Cooper song coming from my lips. At 13 or 14, I sang, "I love the dead before they rise, no hellos, no goodbyes." Yikes! What must my parents have thought?
Jefferson Airplane was big when my DH was in his early teens. "Go Ask Alice" was one of his faves. Great - a song about drug use. Since we both contributed to her gene pool, we'll be watching very carefully!
A special note for my sister Ruthie, who is in the hospital. Get well soon. I love you lots.

My parents weren't too worried about a 13 year old singing "Rock and Roll Love Letter" by the Bay City Rollers.

I actually still have an Alice Cooper RECORD buried somewhere in my stuff. Yikes.

LOL on the demonic possession. I didn't realize this has been a problem for you!

Julia - You must have been a good kid. I was the last of 3 girls who put my folks thru hell!

Julie - See above;-)

Loved summer when I was younger. I didn't get into much trouble. At least nothing my mom ever found out about, LOL.

I loved that Alice Cooper song. I sang it every summer, and also his "No More Mr. Nice Guy." Don't ask me why. *lol* Then when I got older it was Pink Floyd's "The Wall 2". You know, the one that goes, "We don't need no education, we don't need no tough control, no dark sarcasm in the classroom... hey teacher, leave the kids alone..."
