Sweet Valley Confession
When I was younger (circa. age 10), I wanted to be Lila Fowler. I mean, why not? She was rich, had a cool car, lots of boytoys, and one of the best snarky personalities ever.
Taking it slightly further, I used to pretend I was Lila. My bike was the lime green Triumph, which I would ride around the neighbourhood talking to myself as though I were giving a fictional entourage a tour of the estate.
I don't know if Fowler Crest had a vineyard, but I grew up next to a cornfield, which I referred to as "the vineyard".
After a few months of fantasy, I realized that I could never be Lila. But I could play her! In my mind, I was cast as Lila in the TV series, and I did imaginary interviews with the newsmedia on how awesome it was to have been chosen for the role. I acted out scenes, like, all the time. Particularly while walking home from the bus stop. My mom would catch me walking up the street talking to myself and make fun of me while I did my homework.
Anyone else ever do anything like this?
