When I was a little girl, I wanted to grow up to be Dolly Parton. Not be LIKE Dolly, but to actually BE Dolly herself. I would sing along to her records while wearing my yellow pillowcase bobby-pinned to my head for big blonde hair. I cannot count how many times that I have sang Islands In The Stream and Hard Candy Christmas or watched 9 To 5 and Steel Magnolias.
As anatomy goes, I did NOT grow up to be Dolly Parton. Far from it. But as a roll model, I think that she is an awesome person. The music and awards are just the icing on the cake compared to her philanthropy and genuine love of helping people. I can't wait to sign Babybird up for her Imagination Library!
A nasty rumor started circulating this week that Dolly had passed away from congestive heart failure, Dolly fired back to let everyone know that she is still kickin’! I haven’t found the exact quote yet, but I heard on the news this morning that she said "I almost had a heart attack to find out that I was dead."
She cracks me up!
Here are a few of my other favorite Dolly quotes:
You'll never do a whole lot unless you're brave enough to try.
I'm not offended by dumb blonde jokes because I know that I'm not dumb. I also know I'm not blonde.
I'm not going to limit myself just because people won't accept the fact that I can do something else.
I wanted to be the first woman to burn her bra, but it would have taken the fire department four days to put it out.
Some of my dreams are so big they would scare you.
I describe my look as a blend of Mother Goose, Cinderella, and the local hooker!
I still close my eyes and go home - I can always draw from that.
Who (or what) did you want to be when you "grew up"?
