[FALSE] I Love Little House on the Prairie

trueorfalseI don’t remember what I wanted to watch on our TV after school, but I do remember – OH! do I remember – not wanting to watch reruns of Little House on the Prairie.

Looking back, it doesn’t make sense. I was a farm girl. I loved the prairie and farm life. I loved stories that featured headstrong girls (hello, Laura much?). But I hated watching LHotP.

Maybe it was because my sister loved it. She and I didn’t have the best track record for getting along back then, and it wouldn’t be unheard of for one of us to dislike a thing simply to spite the other. I certainly wasn’t above that kind of behavior.

Maybe it was because there were no magical powers. If Laura had maybe been able to summon fairies, or if Nelly perhaps harbored a secret pair of demons in those perfect ringlets, I would have been more interested.

Do you have any thoughts about Little House on the Prairie? What after-school reruns made you want to bang your head against the wall when you were a kid?

“Shrilugh is a rollicking adventure story, yet the author has a firm grasp on the emotional turmoil brought on when life insists you leave childhood behind and grow up. I found it fascinating to watch as Aydan struggles with releasing a past she can never re-gain and facing a future that terrifies her.” (Four stars, Amazon review)
