Earlier this week, Gretchen and I pulled up "Singing in the Rain" on the DVR when we were looking for something entertaining to tide us over to the start of the new TV season. At one point or another, I noticed that Debbie Reynolds seemed to have a bit of a southern accent, so I pulled up a browser on my phone and discovered that she was born in El Paso, Texas, which I took as explaining the drawl.
Having pulled up the article, I kept on reading it. I had been musing that Debbie Reynolds was pretty cute back then. And then I read that she had been just eighteen when the movie was filmed, which was in the pretty frighteningly young category. As in way too young to be musing about the cuteness of. :)
And then I noticed her birth date. Which was in the early 1930s. Which makes her about the same age as my deceased mother.
My brain hurts.
There's a Heinlein novel in there somewhere... :)
