Fond Television Memories (vol. 1)

So today in my communications class they were talking about growing up wit television and the impact it has had on your life. Obviously, TV is VERY important to me and I got to thinking about all the great times I have had watching it. Naturally, I decided to share those stories on this blog...

There are many (I already have a huge list), but the one that came to mind first involves my Dad. It must have been because in the class, we were filling out these 'surveys' and one of the questions asked who has been most influential in your life. I answered my Dad. I honestly never thought I would say that, but the older I get, the more of a Daddy's girl I become. My Dad is polite, he works hard, he is independent, he is smart, and he is the funniest person I know. People respect him and people love him and I hope someday people feel that way about me. 

Now, the story (which is actually very simple). 

For some strange reason, I love Baywatch. Always have, always will. Growing up, I thought Pamela Anderson (aka CJ) was gorgeous and I wanted to look just like her. I have perfected the Baywatch jump over the waves and even own the Baywatch Barbie (which is named Summer, after Nicole Eggert). I just love the show. It wasn't until I got older that I realized it is kind of a joke show- girls running in swimsuits is the reason most people tune in. But I still love it- and my favorite Baywatch memory is my Dad teaching us to say 'hubba hubba.' 

That's right. He would say, "Hey, what is she?" and we would say back, "Hubba, hubba." We still say it to this day...

Thanks for the memory Dad! And, of course, thank you Baywatch
