I'm Not Ready Footnotes

When saying "No" just won't do, try saying "I'm not ready" to the face of temptation. Don't be surprised if temptation leaves you for a friend...

Fast Times at Ridgemont High 1982 and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 1989. Two movies at either end of the decade that both have a fantasy scene involving a girl in a bathing suit getting ready to jump in the pool...my real life scene had a girl in a birthday suit and no pool, but she was still wet from the bath...


Hall and Oates, Maneater 1982. Another reference to one of my top 5 80's bands. What a warning this song gives us. I sure needed that running through my head when she came out of the bathroom.

Yes, Owner of a Lonely Heart 1983. The first of three references to this song since this is the first girl in the series to get stolen from me by a friend. My teenage life is full of lonely heart stories.
