The Girl Who Didn’t Want To Go Groupie

Dandelion Dagger and Highway Child wanted me to be part of their groupie trio, out to conquer the hair metal world.  I don’t know what they saw in me.  All I wanted to do was make jewelry.  They pulled me in because they were so interested in where I came from and why I was in L.A. making jewelry for rock stars.  They were my sisters that day on the sidewalk.

Ma and Pa can’t ever know I’m a groupie, because then they’ll laugh in my face and say, See?  You’re a dumb, good for nothin’ girl.  Just like we always said!

Oh dear, there I go wringing my hands again, because I know that I’ve said too much.

Please don’t tell them all the bad things that I’ve just confessed.

Let’s keep it our little secret.
