So for three hours I listened to and kind of watched the True Hollywood Story special of Growing Pains, followed by pieces of True Hollywood Story: Katie Holmes. I learned about sibling rivalry on and off the set of GP and that Katie apparently said as a child that she was going to marry Tom Cruise.
On the way home, Dad was driving and Gwen Stefani's hit of the summer, Hollaback Girl, came on the radio. We listened to a few verses of "B-A-N-A-N-A-S" in silence when Dad chimed in. "Okay I have a question."
Me, numb with a mouth full of gauze, not contributing much to the conversation, waited for this question.
"So what's a Holla-fat girl?"
It was difficult to control the drool flow as, caught off guard, I laughed in the passenger seat.
