I remember you having me listen to a song when I was ten or eleven.
It was "I Love the Dead" by Alice Cooper.
This was long before I learned to love horror,
and the song horrified me.
I remember you showing me Eric Clapton's Blind Faith album cover.
I was too sheltered to appreciate the art.
The sight of boobs sickened me.
I couldn't finish the chicken noodle soup you made for me.
I just now listened to the song again, because I remembered part of it, even though I hadn't heard it in so long. That's how much of an impact it had on me.
I like it now. I wish I hadn't been too sheltered to like it then.
I just now looked up the Blind Faith cover again.
I remembered it differently.
I still don't like chicken noodle soup.
But I never liked it anyway.
I think you're one of the many reasons I love horror now.
