Groovy MomGoth


I’ll tell the world! Check out that Beatle-y hairdo.

And, oh! if this picture were only in color! That dress was a shift with three cloth ruffles on the bottom. The dress was sherbert orange with little pink polka-dots on it, and two of the ruffles were also orange with pink polks-dots, with the other being pink and orange stripes.

It was so ’60s, it probably smoked dope when I wasn’t watching.

I was so totally NOT groovy, I can’t imagine how my grandmother talked me into wearing something so fashionable. It was bound to have been Gramma’s doing; she was always trying to get me to act my age instead of being such a little old lady. I wish she were still alive; I think she’d appreciate how much I’ve immatured.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character does or has one thing that’s in fashion.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Oh, I wish! When Sara Marian was about this age, though, she had a Mohawk that she spiked to the sky.
