Reality check. I remember in 1st year junior high school English class reading assignment. "The secret life of Walter Mitty" I went into shock when I read that. How he vividly lived out so many scenarios in his day dreaming. I was so covered over and animalistic. Hardly human at all so when we read that.. something happened inside. My outer self was different from my inner self.
Junior high school means 1960..
TV was just becoming available, we had 5 stations... it wouldn't start
until we hit it on the back of the picture tube with a shoe brush.
