Riley on Marketing

December 28, 2011

If YouTube existed back in the day, this probably would have been me captured on camera.  I never played with Barbies. I never got the point. I hated everything about princesses.  In fact, my favorite book was The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munch because it ends with the Princess telling off Prince Charming (Ronald) because after her castle burns down and she’s left with nothing to wear but a paper bag.  Ronald comments that she looks awful, and she lets him have it! I could never get enough of that book. And, my father probably got the most pleasure out of reading it with me.

I also very much resented baseball and football. Why couldn’t girls play them? So, without further adieu, I give you Riley… Sing it, sister!
