Plenty of home videos circa 1994 (and many other years) reveal a young Erin dancing around the living room. But one particular video shows me in a white dress playing pretend with a doll.

I Say Thanksgiving "Wrong"

   Posted On: November 26, 2013  |    Posted In: Random  |     Posted by: Broke Millennial®
