As we helped Jackson unpack and make his bed, hundreds of memories flooded back. Some were of swimming in the lake, others were of working with the campers. But remember, I was fourteen. Quite a few were of my first real kiss, the friends that I said I would stay friend with 4+ever, the pig-latin type secret language the female staff members created much to the consternation of the males, and finally the Top 40 songs we listened to on portable radio when we were on Night Duty so that the real counselors could have some down time until 11:00. I giggle at how those songs were so "meaningful" to us at the time:
- 1999 by Prince
- Sweet Dreams by The Eurythmics
- The ENTIRE Thriller album by Michael Jackson
- Human Touch by Rick Springfield (probably not his most memorable)
Oh, and there are plenty of other literal videos out there... you really will laugh until your sides hurt and you spit out your cosmopolitan!
