Growing up, I’m not exactly sure if I had an absolute fave cartoon character.
I mean sure, I loved all of the Disney princesses. Of course — I liked Jasmine and Belle the best, because they are brunettes. Apparently discrimination starts young.
But I did love The Muppets. Last night I was felt like I was 4 years old watching cartoons in my moms bedroom again after painting my nails with OPI’s new “Warm and Fozzie” from the 2011 Muppets collection.
Wacka wacka. It’s cute right? I have Brynne to thank for literally dropping it off at my doorstep. What’s that saying? Friends that obsess over nail polish together, stay together. Yeah, something like that.
Another fun story: When I was left alone in my moms room at age 4, I decided to cut off all of my hair. I’m talking different lengths, all over. A trim here, a slice there, and my once Shirley Temple ringlets were finito. I then walked down the stairs, my mom shrieked a shriek I’ll never forget, we went to the hairdresser for an “emergency appointment,” where we both cried a little, and then she proceeded to call my kindergarten teacher to tell her not to let the other kids make fun of me because I looked slightly like a boy.
If that’s not love, I don’t know what is. Happy Hump Day!
Fave childhood cartoon characters? Go.
