Young Rebel, or future recruit for CI5?
1980: I turned nine.
I had just emigrated to Canada with my mother
and I had no idea there was a show called "The Professionals"
currently airing in the UK. For that matter, we didn't even own
Yes, I was an abused child. Pop-culturally, anyway.
I was also a rebel in more than name - that year
I amused myself by stealing pocket money, skipping school, lighting
little fires in the shed (really little, honest!), getting into
fistfights (and mostly losing them, too), and lying to cover my
ass (in Brit-speak, I understand this is called an arse).
Ah, the good old days!
But I grew up, went to University, joined
the Army Reserve, and nowadays I'm all married and respectable-like.
Except for my taste in hawt man-on-man action, and violent TV shows
from the seventies. My other fandoms are "Starsky & Hutch"
and "The Man From UNCLE".
