A few young people have asked me to elaborate on the image in my last post. 
Morticia Addams. Tish!
I loved her with a deep dark passion since the day I first saw her.
Other kids had normal crushes on television characters. My first TV crush was Morticia Addams.
I was 9 years old when The Addams Family television show premiered.
I’ve been smitten with her ever since.
Despite the external creepiness and spookiness, Morticia is a loving wife, a loyal friend and a devoted mother.
She, like every member of the Addams family is genuinely happy with who she is and what is expected of her.
To me, Morticia Addams is the quintessential Creepy Girl.
Long may you haunt my dreams and fantasies, Tish!
 This I found both sad and pleasing. Sad that some people did not even know (let alone appreciate) the works of Charles Addams and his delightfully macabre cartoon family… and pleasing in that it provided me an opportunity to introduce a whole new world to people who would otherwise have gone through life without the comforting ray of creepy moonlight that is The Addams Family.
