"The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose the other ages you've been."
~ Madeleine L'Engle
When I was a kid I wanted to be Molly Ringwald. Me and my sister watched and re-watched Sixteen Candles over and over until my brothers had had enough and confiscated both the remote control and VCR, not without us putting up a fight I might add. We never got tired of the Geek and Jake and Long Duck Dong and the annoying little brother. And the ending. I mean how perfect is the ending? Samantha finally gets to see Jake after her horrible sister gets married, and there he is looking all super hot in his super hot car. On her sixteenth birthday no less. I mean, come on. What girl in her right mind didn't want to have a birthday like that one day? She set the bar high, that Molly Ringwald girl.
